    I don't want a tree where every driver has seventeen lines of if IBM and
    not 64bit || parisc || x86 || !x86_64 || ia64) && (!wednesdayafternoon)

    Its *unmaintainable*.

    The sparc64 people don't do it, the mips people don't do it, the ia64
    people don't do it, wtf should you get to fill with crap

    The _ISA stuff makes sense, thats sensible, but the rest - when people
    moan we tell em to fix the drivers.
