Apologies for the cross post, but I wasn't sure of the best place the
ask the following question.

Now that @Contended is implemented is there any chance that it will be
applied to AtomicLong or an alternative "PaddedAtomicLong" be provided
in JDK8?

I'd be happy to submit a patch if that is what would be required to
get this implemented.  My personal interest in this is that I could
drop a whole bunch of code that currently uses the Unsafe and replace
it with this class.
