:Is /sys/boot/i386/libi386 supposed to be removed, too?
No, I'm trying to avoid messing with the boot build. At most we might
rename it to sys/boot/pc32/libi386, but for now I'm just not worrying
The main thing is to separate cpu-specific components such as
atomic.h, atomic.c, in_cksum2.s, from PC-specific components
such as BIOS, ACPI, APM support, etc. Cpu components are being
put in cpu/i386/... and PC components are being put in machine/pc32/...
This way the virtual kernel build, which replaces the PC components,
can still use the cpu components without having to duplicate them.
