Ah OK, thanks for the explanation, my test 486-build (before your change) just finished to :

arch/x86/built-in.o:(__ksymtab+0xa8): undefined reference to `cmpxchg8b_emu'
kernel/built-in.o: In function `sched_clock_local':
/opt/src/linux-2.6/kernel/sched_clock.c:130: undefined reference to `cmpxchg8b_emu'
kernel/built-in.o: In function `sched_clock_remote':
/opt/src/linux-2.6/kernel/sched_clock.c:166: undefined reference to `cmpxchg8b_emu'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Thats perfect this fixed my 486-build, thanks again.

Looking at disassembly I still see atomic64_cmpxchg(),
atomic64_xchg(), atomic64_add_return(), and friends being
included... (but not used)

I'll check if similar patch could be done as well for atomic64 functions.
