Perhaps better to define and use macros for the accesses
instead of specific uses of atomic_long_<inc/dec/read>

Something like:

#define totalram_pages()	(unsigned long)atomic_long_read(&_totalram_pages)
#define totalram_pages_inc()	(unsigned long)atomic_long_inc(&_totalram_pages)
#define totalram_pages_dec()	(unsigned long)atomic_long_dec(&_totalram_pages)
