    Thanks for doing this.

    I think the last remaining bit to cleanup is the symlink from
    arch/x86/boot/bzImage. Now that the old directories are gone it does
    not make much sense to keep them alive. Andrew will survive it :)

    Please send it Linus wards and feel free to add my Acked-by to all of
    them.

    Thanks,

    tglx
