    Subject[GIT PULL] kill i386 and x86_64 directories
    Hi Linus.

    This patch serie kill the old i386 and x86_64 directories.
    Introducing a few trivial changes in top-level Makefile
    and kconfig Makefile allows us to move all files to
    arch/x86/ where they belong.

    Kay Sievers hit a bug in the first patch-set - this is now fixed and
    the updated patch set is uploaded to my x86.git tree.
    Build tested on both i386 and x86_64.
    I test builded a few other archs just to check that I did not break them.

    A nice patch serie that deletes more lines than it adds.

    Under normal circumstances I would not send this to you after the
    merge window but this serie give a good hint to the casual
    reader that something changed now the directories are gone.
    So they do not ask - why are so many files missing. Now they
    will hunt for the new location.

    I did not amend the serie to add his acked-by - but just kept it in this mail.
