Basically. But, to be thorough:
- roll back the hooks for compat signal vectors, syscalls, etc.
- add COMPAT option that at the MI level pulls in compat_mod.c.
- add per-MACHINE glue for COMPAT that implies relevant COMPAT_XX options.
- remove COMPAT_XX from GENERIC kernel configs and replce with COMPAT.
