[CGAtomic] Mark atomic libcall functions `nounwind`

These functions won't ever unwind. This is useful for MemorySanitizer
as it simplifies handling __atomic_load in particular.

While we are here, how about setting a few more attributes?
argmemonly, readonly/writeonly, willreturn come to mind.

nocapture on the pointer argument

I don't think we can necessarily guarantee argmemonly/readonly/writeonly, particularly since these library calls can take a lock somewhere inside. I'll definitely add nocapture and willreturn though.

Added willreturn. I think nocapture is probably best left to a future change since it's more invasive -- it would require keeping tabs of which arguments to each function is a pointer arg.
