I did find that confusing in the i386 tree. There is one set of installer
modules like drivers.tgz and rescue.bin in the current directory, and then
more sets of code in the subdirectories idepci, compact, etc. I finally
deduced the ones in the top-level directory were 'vanilla', why don't they
belong in a vanilla directory? powerpc's directory organization is more
intuitive for me, it hides the other flavors I don't need.
