FWIW: this pre-release does not even link on SPARC because somebody forgot
to implement all those new locking functions used by the networking layer...
A quick check through the asm-<arch> directories reveals that they are also
missing for ALPHA, ARM, M68K, MIPS and PPC. Or to put it the other way round:
they are only implemented for I386 and SPARC64...
