I am finally satisfied with my ppc-threads tree, and thus am
announcing it here. The gitweb repository is at
and can be and can be cloned via <git://repo.or.cz/sbcl/nyef.git>. If
any of you grabbed an earlier version, please be advised that you will
need to fetch again; the entire branch history has been rewritten.
As noted elsewhere, the resulting system is unstable with more than
one thread, due to the lack of explicit memory barriers in SBCL.
Several rather invasive runtime changes were required, I hopefully
adjusted things so that other targets will still build (linux/x86-64
was tested, both threaded and not).
I anticipate committing this branch early in the 1.0.40 cycle,
hopefully along with something for memory barriers.

I reviewed mostly the non-ppc bits, they look good.
