Hi, ECL community

I met some problems when compiling usocket on ECL 9.4.0, below is the  
error outputs:

;;;   gcc  -g -O2 -fPIC -fno-common -D_THREAD_SAFE  -Ddarwin -O "-I/

I think following code in usocket break above build:

   (defun fdset-alloc ()
     (ffi:c-inline () () :pointer-void
      "cl_alloc_atomic(sizeof(fd_set))" :one-liner t))

It seems that the function "cl_alloc_atomic" doesn't exist anymore.

1. What should we (usocket) do instead in ECL 9.4.0?
2. Is there anyway to detect the exist of "cl_alloc_atomic" in any ECL  
versions? (ECL doesn't put any version information in CL *features*,  
and we (usocket) want to support more ECL versions as many as possible)
