Most likely because I do not fully understand the handling of atomic 
operations in buildroot ;)

Pulseaudio has optional support for libatomic_ops, first it checks whether 
the toolchain itself supports __sync_bool_compare_and_swap


to prefer this toolchain support if available:

Otherwise it needs libatomic_ops

I tried to code this configure logic by Pulseaudio into the buildroot

On platforms lacking BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_SYNC_4 libatomic_ops is therefore a 
hard dependency, all others do not need libatomic_ops because Pulseaudio 
will use the toolchain code.

Please note that you wrote a similar


for libdrm: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/package/libdrm?
