improving x86 support in RIOT is a not such a bad idea, in my opinion.
If you are interested in this however, instead of the Galileo board, I
would suggest working on support for Arduino 101 .
The first step would be to provide initial support i.e. to have the bare
minimum for the RIOT shell to work, which means have context switching,
FYI, there is support for x86 through the QEMU support  but this is
likely outdated and would have to be overhauled to be harmonized somewhat
with current ARM, AVR, and MSP430 support.
@Kijewski care to comment on that latest statement?
