Per my e-mail to current@/arch@, we are the lucky owners of no less than three 
ATM stacks.  Of these, two were MPSAFE, and remain present and functional, and 
the other (netatm) is now disconnected from the build.  Skip Ford has been 
working on locking patches for netatm, so I have a reasonable hope that we'll 
be able to re-enable it again in the future, hence having left them in the 
tree rather than deleting them.  If this doesn't happen by the time we get to 
7.1, I'll delete the files from the RELENG_7 branch to limit confusion.
