I've changed i386 GENERIC to include MCA stuff. This also means
that the check for MCA bus is done by default on all machines. I've
tested this on couple machines and had no problems, the code seems
to work as it's supposed to. However, I don't have any old, weird
stuff besides the IBM PS/2, so this testing might not necessarily
be sufficient.

Even through appropriate BIOS call should be supported by all
AT-compatible computers, it's possible there is some hw out there
which would not like it.

If you encounter problem with -current i386 GENERIC kernels panicing early
or something of that kind, please report promptly.
