The rule of thumb question is: "Can you build a kernel that will boot on
an XBOX and also on a non-XBOX i386?"

If you can, without doing something really ugly, then XBOX is a kernel
config in arch i386.

If you can't, then XBOX should be its own arch.

Either way, you probably don't actually need (or want) #ifdef XBOX
