Well, we had agreed on removing all those /dev entries we're never going
to need on m68k, right? Like those isdn nodes, Cyclades network driver
or whatever - there's lots of them. Likewise, i386 folks won't want to
see fb device entries in there.

Also, the /dev/MAKEDEV script will have to be adapted accordingly so that
it can create 'our' nodes.

Don't ask me - historic reasons? :-)
arch/m68k/atari/atakeyb.c, line 772:
    /* say that we don't have an AltGr key */
    mach_keyboard_type = KB_84;

Ugly? Hmm..well, I don't need colo(u)rs all the time, and X in monochrome is
much faster than X in 8/32bpp. :-)
