Given the information below I reckon that one is broken.

Ok, tried that one, now the autoconf check passes. Thanks for your

So, unless I misunderstand, these boxes are not supported since a 64 bit
kernel would not run, and using 32 bit kernel __sync_fetch_and_add_8
will stall as I observed. That should be fixed, then. I'd like to and
will try but probably lack the skills.

As this is not a Debian issue, should I switch to the parisc kernel
list, or do the relevant people read here anyway?
