That explains it. Code for this special case is obviously missing.

I made a test and compiled sys/arch/m68k/m68k/lock_stubs.s for 68010, and
the kernel booted without problems!

So we have these options:
- add the missing 020-support in the exception handler for CAS and TAS
- make the 68010-code in lock_stubs.s compile for 68020 as well

There are certainly more 020-based systems than my A2500 (some Suns?).
Crossposting to port-m68k because of that.
