I can understand your pain.  However, most of the changes made to the
kernel-source are not i386-specific.  In fact, if they were, they would
not be causing these patch conflicts that you're seeing.

So essentially throwing them out means that your architecture will miss
out on all bug fixes.  If this turns out to be what most of you want, then
that's fine and I will do just that.
