Intrinsic functions of the compiler to allow for shared memory synchronization, especially between nodes.

    (PVOID)InterlockedExchange((LONG*)(Target), (LONG)(Value))

The variable pointed to by the Addend parameter must be aligned on a 64-bit boundary; otherwise, this function will behave unpredictably on multiprocessor x86 systems and any non-x86 systems.

The interlocked functions provide a simple mechanism for synchronizing access to a variable that is shared by multiple threads. This function is atomic with respect to calls to other interlocked functions.

This function generates a full memory barrier (or fence) to ensure that memory operations are completed in order.
