I am no ams and PIC expert, but I think that the following code
                    volatile asm
                        push EDI;
                        lea EDI, newval;
                        mov ESI, [EDI];
                        mov ECX, 4[EDI];
                        lea EDI, equalTo;
                        mov EAX, [EDI];
                        mov EDX, 4[EDI];
                        mov EDI, val;
                        push EBX;
                        xchg EBX, ESI;
                        lock; // lock always needed to make this op atomic
                        cmpxch8b [EDI];
                        setz AL;
                        mov EBX, ESI;
                        pop EBX;
                        pop EDI;
should work on x86 when compiled with -fPIC, because EBX is pushed & popped and
no variable or symbol is accessed between push & pop.

The compiler complains about clobbered EBX (from the two xchg EBX and mov EBX
