This is "done", but there are some additional features I'd like to get
in before the release: $LANGUAGE support and perhaps plurals. nsz
mentioned on IRC possibly writing an expression evaluator for this but
I don't know the timeframe.

I've sent my remaining comments on this to the list. I'd like it if we
could get this smaller/simpler but I don't see any good way.

Done. This code still has a number of issues I'd like to clean up, but
at least it should be safe now. In the long term I'd like to use a
similar strategy for both ARM and sh (and any other archs where the
atomic implementation needs to be selected at runtime) to minimize
both the code size/register spillage in the caller and the run time in
the callee.

> - Merging some remaining atomic asm fixups I have in progress

I've done the cleanup of cruft. I want to change some constraints to
be more consistent and add volatile attributes, but it's enough work
and enough chance to mess things up that I think I'll punt on the rest
for now and revisit it later.

> - Reviewing and merging getopt_long abbreviated options patch

I'm looking into a simpler approach to this that avoids the problem of
matching ambiguous abbreviations.
