To build module binaries it might work, but how can kernels
(and bootloaders) choose subdir in /stand to load modules per machine?
Introduce a new variable ${MACHINE_KERNEL_ARCH} etc?

I considered the similar idea for sun3/sun3x, but I realized
that module binaries could be shared among sun3/sun3x kernels
even though their TEXTADDR values were different.
(kobj_reloc() handles it)

BTW, is anyone working on arch/mips/mips/kobj_machdep.c?
Currently no MD kobj(9) functions for module(7) on mips.
(and there is no kobj(9) man pages ;-p)
