Either is fine with me.  I was trying to ask whether we needed
cpu_{root,swap,dump}conf().  From a cursory scan of the source it
looked like at least the last two are MI, and we could just do


[qpretty safely.  rootconf() takes a port-specific XXX_nam2block()
array, so a port-specific closure looks like the best answer there.
Scanning all the other ports' autoconf.c I happen to haev have around,
swapconf() and dumpconf() don't take any args and get called
immediately after rootconf().

We could rename them all to cpu_swapconf() and cpu_dumpconf()
if that's more consistent.
I guess it's all the same, really.
