I'm working towards this on several architectures.  A large part of this
is marking options as "depends on PCI" and "depends on X86" so that the
simulator targets (Ski, uml, etc) can use the generic drivers/Kconfig.
That work's going in through the kernel-janitors tree at the moment.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
