Thanks for doing this. One comment:

The comment about adding Athlons was a misleading mistake of mine that
shouldn't have stayed in the repository. This case statement switches on
$target_cpu, which is canonicalized. So Athlons have always been getting
fenric 17% ls -lF build/build-2002-11-01-trunk/athlon_mp-pc-linux-gnu/libstdc++-v3/include/athlon_mp-pc-linux-gnu/bits/atomicity.h

I've never done anything with x86-64, so I don't know whether they get
canonicalized to i86 or not.
To avoid confusing future hackers, how about changing that line to just
with x86_64 if it needs to be there?
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
