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.)

I've reverted on trunk in r340666 and merged to the 7.0 branch in
r340667. Also +Craig fyi for X86.

Unfortunately this happened after RC2 which was tagged yesterday, but
perhaps you can do a test run against the tip of the branch, and then
later RC3 of coures?

Also, is there a bug filed somewhere to track fixing the FreeBSD side?
It would be great if we could reinstate this patch again before the
next release.
