At least, a lot more effort is needed to supply properly working atomic libcalls for 64 bit values on i386.  (They can't be implemented without at least a bit of kernel assistance.)

Since I'm testing on FreeBSD 11.x, and that will take quite a while to get any new changes, I'd say it's safer to revert for now, at least on the branch.  At least then I can build and test the RCs on i386-freebsd. :)
