The n_poll_lcores counter and poll_lcore array are shared between lcores
and the update of these variables are out of the protection of spinlock
on each lcore timer list. The read-modify-write operations of the counter
are not atomic, so it has the potential of race condition between lcores.

Use c11 atomics with RELAXED ordering to prevent confliction.
