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.
