Strange, I thought that's what I was doing ;-)

I wanted to get the initial support out of the way early to see if there
was anything in the generic code that needed work, but apart from some
minor stuff it's been kept fairly well isolated. The SH support I have
works fine, but isn't a lot of code, and can trivially be reworked on top
of whatever the new interface looks like. I've left out things like
ptrace and kgdb stub integration precisely because I knew the code was
being reworked.

Given that, I'm not in any particular rush, so whenever the reworked
patches are available, I'll give them a run and rebase accordingly.
