Good. Not that Itanium is nice, but it certainly supports all required atomic ops. I think somebody with access to that will have to figure out what intrinsics are provided then - I haven't found reference documentation for aCC's ia64/sys/inline.h. I think Tom's stance that people who want a platform to be supported need to help is reasonable. It's really hard to develop not entirely trivial code for platforms you don't have access to and that don't even have a buildfarm member.
