       atom_min - 64-bit atom_min functions.

       long atom_min(volatile global(3clc) long *p, long val);

       long atom_min(volatile global(3clc) long *p, long val);

       ulong atom_min(volatile local(3clc) ulong *p, ulong val);

       ulong atom_min(volatile local(3clc) ulong *p, ulong val);


       Read the 64-bit value (referred to as old) stored at location pointed by p. Compute
       commonMin(3clc) (old, val) and store minimum value at location pointed by p. The function
       returns old.

       An application that wants to use this extension will need to include the #pragma OPENCL
       EXTENSION cl_khr_int64_extended_atomics : enable in the OpenCL program source.

       This function is performed in one atomic transaction. These transactions are atomic for
       the device executing these atomic functions. There is no guarantee of atomicity if the
       atomic operations to the same memory location are being performed by kernels executing on
       multiple devices.

       Atomic operations on 64-bit integers and 32-bit integers (and float) are also atomic with
       regard to each other.
