Yes, I know what math emulation is.
Why must the generic kernel-image for i386 support 386 machines with
no coprocessor? Is it to be able to say that debian still got kernels
for >10 year old machines, or is there anyone actually using the
generic kernel supplied from debian on >10 year old machines? Or is
there some other reason?
