    Not quite. There were two non-driver suggestions that the man did
    make: remove 386/486 support and remove floating-point emulation
    support. Both are bad for the embedded-systems space, because the 486 is
    still used there widely.

    Are all the bus support code exclusively in drivers, or is there something
    compiled into the nucleus for start-up?

    I didn't see your "don't feed the troll" sign before...
