The spec changed: the function is obsolete.
Needs to be removed from MDN, too.

For adding some reviewer value here, let's add some links to the specification, explaining what are the motivations for removal (premature optimizations, if I skimmed correctly)

Just nuked the method page from the Atomics reference docs https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Atomics

Not going to add any compatibility note as this is an experimental API anyway and we are shipping it only for 2 releases (will this be uplifted?).
