Dunno about "easy", but I can now generate a shared library that
contains ifunc symbols. Gotta get that testsuite in now...
A functional testcase would be to copy all the following files from
testsuite/gcc.dg , compile them with -fno-atomics, and execute them
linked with the library. That will test for proper execution of the
library as well as all symbols being available.
To test true atomicity requires the simulate-thread environment with an
additional understanding of what your locks are so that the
'other_thread' process can't go and change something that is currently
locked... Probably better left until later.
