[PATCH] running on i586



Hi all,

I finally got the NPTL tests to run on my i586. I didn't choose a nice
solution, learning x86 ASM is hard anough without learning autoconf,
but it seems to work.

All I did, was copy 3 files (from sysdeps/i386/i686 to
sysdeps/i386/i586, they might have to go to i486) and edit one of the
copied files (sysdeps/i386/i586/pthread_spin_trylock.S) and one other
file (sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386/i486/lowlevelrwlock.S, the original
should go in i686 instead of i486, I don't know if my version runs on
i486) to replace '(CMOVNE a,b)+' with 'JE label (MOV a,b)+
label:'. Both files have 1 such sequence, so the difference is not
that large.

I could send in a patch, if you want, but it is hardly usable. I
picked label-names that probably don't describe what the code
does. Besides, the directories need some cleanup I didn't do.

Bye,
        Marijn
