Most architectures are easy to convert. But those that uses
symlinks to select between different platforms etc needs a bit more
care if we shall get rid of all symlinks.

Paul already fixed up sh and sent you a pull request.
I have something ready for arm (not yet posted).
And I sent Harvaard a small script that can fix avr32 when arm is done.
cris looks similar and I can take care too.

The rest that does not use additiona symlinks are in general much simpler.

Kyle already fixed up parisc (simple).
x86 is simple - only a small patch needed to arch/x86/Makefile.
I have not dared looking at um.

But will you accept this stuff now or will we have to wait until
next merge window?
Now is a good time as development just started for next kernel.
And testing is simple - does it build?

It will come in via arch maintainers but I will assist.

Sam
