Yeah -- I'd imagine there's _lots_ of code that can be shared -- probably 
most conficts that exist can be taken care of with macros, or whatever, 
or really-platform-specific routines (like driver match/attach) could be 
kept in separate files (in the ${arch}/dev directory), or maybe the Sun 
ports could take the path the isa ports have taken, and have, say, a 
vme_machdep.c and an obio_machdep.c ... Dunno -- just ideas...

Utah did something similar with HP-specific stuff...
