    Well, I think it should be reasonable to convert everything but lib/, the
    latter being used for various implicit bits like strcpy() or whatever some
    version of GCC may come up with. Plus possibly generic code overridable
    by boards for optimisation; I am not sure if we have got left any at the
    moment though.

    With the much better configuration language of 2.6 and more and more
    stuff being done by magic sections bits built as libraries cause more
    hassle than convenience.
