Take a look at the current 32-bit mips file. You should probably be able to just implement a_ll, a_sc, a_barrier, a_pre_llsc, a_post_llsc, and a_cas_p. I have a patch I'm working on that would let 64-bit ll/sc archs like mips64 and powerpc64 implement 64-bit variants of a_ll/a_sc and have src/internal/atomic.h implement a_cas_p and some of the other 64-bit operations in terms of those primitives, which should further simplify this file. I'll try to get this patch cleaned up and submitted tonight. - In bits/signal.h, is the union in fpregset_t correct for both big and little endian? - In pthread_arch.h, what instruction is that 0x7c03e83b? I see this same code is present in the existing musl mips32 port, but IMHO it could use a comment identifying the instruction. - In syscall_arch.h, are the definitions of __SYSCALL_LL_E/O correct? Those macros exist because some 32-bit architectures pass 64-bit system call parameters in even/odd register pairs, even if there is an unused odd numbered register. On 64-bit architectures, where long long fits inside a single register, I would expect these to both be defined to (x) - I'm sure about the changes in ldso/dynlink.c. One of them seems to change the whitespace to be more misleading, and one reorders two lines for no apparent reason. I'm not sure the purpose of the remaining hunk. -- Bobby
