we want to use RTAI on low-cost 386EX based boards. In 3.x, the
availability of CONFIG_X86_CMPXCHG in the kernels .config is checked
by RTAIs configure. From the comments in arch/i386/kernel/emu.c i'd
expect that this check is not necessary when the kernel option
CONFIG_X86_EMU486 is set. With the attached patch to RTAIs (3.1)
configure at least it compiles fine. So is the check for "hardware-
cmpxchg()" still needed?
