It doesn't matter if a port isn't "hurt" by this... if we're going to fix
the problem, we should do it Right. I proposed a solution _several_ months
ago to the m68k portmasters (<machine/cpuconf.h>) which deals with CPU,
MMU, FPU, and cache configurations for various platforms. Unfortunately,
it seems like nobody even read my mail about it, since I didn't get a single
word of feedback.
