If in any way possible, it would be better not to have two different
kernels for oldworld and newworld. I think someone with some knowledge
about what hardware exists for mac hardware should go over all
configuration options and tell which parts that are actually compiled
into the kernel aren't of any use. (Chris could you do that?)
Sven: would it be possible to make a more modularized kernel? AFAIK ide
and usb (and scsi?) are not modules. The standard i386 kernel is far
more modularized and uses an initrd also for "normal" booting. This
could be the way to go.
