Pinned topic Any chance of a PLO BIF for z/OS?

I'm interested in implementing lock-free data structures in C++ on z/OS. What would be great is if there was a PLO (Perform Locked Operation) built-in-function. OK, I can implement an assembler routine but would have to pay for the call linkage overhead of calling the routine.
