And here is a simpler reproducer on my gcc-8.3.0 (aarch64) compiled with O2:

volatile unsigned long a;
 
void fct(void)
{
        a = 0x1234567812345678ULL;
}

void fct(void)
{
        a = 0x1234567812345678ULL;
   0:   90000000        adrp    x0, 8 <fct+0x8>
   4:   528acf01        mov     w1, #0x5678                     // #22136
   8:   72a24681        movk    w1, #0x1234, lsl #16
   c:   f9400000        ldr     x0, [x0]
  10:   b9000001        str     w1, [x0]
  14:   b9000401        str     w1, [x0, #4]
}
  18:   d65f03c0        ret

And the non-volatile case uses stp (is it a single store to memory ?):

unsigned long a;
  
void fct(void)
{
        a = 0x1234567812345678ULL;
}

void fct(void)
{
        a = 0x1234567812345678ULL;
   0:   90000000        adrp    x0, 8 <fct+0x8>
   4:   528acf01        mov     w1, #0x5678                     // #22136
   8:   72a24681        movk    w1, #0x1234, lsl #16
   c:   f9400000        ldr     x0, [x0]
  10:   29000401        stp     w1, w1, [x0]
}
  14:   d65f03c0        ret

It would probably be a good idea to audit other architectures, since this
is done by the compiler backend.

Thanks,

Mathieu
