Seems so. I’m trying that now (patched package is compiling
on m68k and an amd64 VM) so expect results in three days or
so. ☺

Is there a (mostly standalone?) testcase for these builtins?
I must confess I program serially (must be because I brought
myself up with GW-BASIC and DEBUG on DOS) so I have very few
knowledge in the threads/atomic/sync/locks area…
