The header file is now in subversion/include/private.

I prefer the latter option to the former. After all, globals in C are
zero-initialized by default, so it works fine even if the user doesn't
explicitly initialize the svn_atomic_t to 0.

Extract the atomic initialization code from libsvn_fs_base/bdb/env.c
and convert it to a generic implementation that can be used to
initialize other libraries (*cough* Cyrus SASL *cough*). Make bdb use
the new implementation.

* subversion/include/private/svn_atomic.h: New file.

* subversion/libsvn_subr/atomic.c: New file.

* subversion/libsvn_fs_base/bdb/env.c
  Include svn_atomic.h instead of apr_atomic.h.
   svn__atomic_cas): These are now in subversion/include/svn_atomic.h
and have a single
  underscore. All calls were changed to reflect this.
   BDB_CACHE_INITIALIZED): Deleted. Similar definitions are now in atomic.c.
  (bdb_cache_state): This is no longer declared inside an #ifdef
  and is no longer explicitly initialized.
  (svn_fs_bdb__init_cb): New function. Contains bdb-specific initialization.
  (svn_fs_bdb__init): Call svn_atomic_init_once().
