Oh, and added to this, v2.4 will probably support at least these (unless
someone reverses the patches) in addition:

- PowerPC (64 bits)
- MIPS (64 bits)
- SuperH (32 bits)

Right now, the S390 port is v2.2 only; I hope it'll be forward-ported
into the v2.3 tree as soon as v2.3 stabilizes a little.


Now what I see is missing would be:

- Whatever processor VAX:en use
- 88k
- Crays (the non-vector models; I suspect that Linux doesn't
would be very suitable on a vector-machine. But I could
be wrong)
- AS/400 (something akin to the S/390 port; a virtual machine
is needed because of the lack of memory protection in
hardware)


Have I missed something out?!
