SubjectRe: [BUG FIX] Make x86_32 uni-processor Atomic ops, Atomic
Hi Harald,

It looks like there might be a problem with the C7-M ... Michael reports
that if he sets LOCK_PREFIX to "lock;" it works, but that shouldn't be
necessary for a uniprocessor.

I'm wondering if we have to revive the OOSTORE hack, or some other
workaround. It is of course hard for me to track this down since (a) I
don't have access to the CPU documentation, and (b) I work for Intel
now, which limits the amount of time I can realistically spend on this.


[Cc: Alan, who I believed developed the OOSTORE hack back when.]

I work for Intel. I don't speak on their behalf.
