Just a note that things like out-of-order execution and threading behave 
subtly different when using multicore ARM chips compared to Intel.

So for threading you really want to use higher level constructs, such as 
thread safe queues etc. even for reading basic C types,  and never rely 
on processor specific behaviour.

If you need to implement low level threading constructs then the linux 
kernel sources are  a good reference source for many architectures.

Just my 2 cents,
