Since when has this been done forever on m68k?

It was working sometimes on some old 1.2.x kernels and perhaps older, it hasnt
been working since afaik, and hasnt been much of an issue until recently on
old macs, as most of atari and amiga owners has gotten ourselves 68881/2 chips
in the meantime.

It's been forever on intel though.
