          Issue ID: 18376
           Summary: core.atomic.atomicOp should allow passing in values by
                    pointer reference
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All

            Status: NEW
          Keywords: bootcamp
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1

There's some existing code out there (e.g. std.getopt) that is based on
pointers.

---
shared int foo;
atomicOpPointer!("+=")(&foo, 1);
---

would help in migrating this code. Other functionality in this module is
already based on pointers (e.g. cas)
