I don't care about the i386 in particular but no on addressed my concern about setting a precedent for other architectures such as m68k which may not have desirable instructions in low models. Even SPARC V7 is questionable if you must have atomic instructions to stay in GCC.

Is this really justified?  Why does the RTEMS project need the i386?  We should
not make the life of GCC developers harder than necessary.
