We hadn't, no.  My point is that in the past we've continued to list
platforms as supported if we've had a successful report in the past
release or two.  Fooling with the spinlock code is delicate enough
that I'd want to insist on moving everything to the "unsupported"
category until we get a success report with the modified code.

Maybe we should just do that.  It's likely that the only platforms
that end up marked unsupported are ones that no one cares about any
more anyway.  But I think we have to realize that this is not a
trivial set of changes, even if it looks like it "should work".
(Which it does, just for the record.  I'm just feeling paranoid
because of where we are in the release cycle.)
