as those who read source-changes might have notice, there were some changes
in kernel tree to make it ready for loading the emulation code via LKM. The
changes committed so far were only necessary code reorganizations.
Behaviour of kernel should not change at all, unless I managed to introduce
some bugs.

If you use any COMPAT_SOMEOS options, you would probably need
to re-run config before you'd be able to compile new kernel
with up-to-date tree.

I've tested the changes very carefully.  I'm running the code for couple of
days now on i386, code for other archs was tested to compile ok on sparc,
mips, m68k, alpha.  There is minimum of machine or architecture
dependant code involved, so I hope I haven't broken anything.

The rest of changes to make emulations loadable will be committed
very soon; for those interested, the code is available at

If you encounter any problems, please you common report bug process
to let know about it.
