Well, the main reason why I don't include other architectures is that I
don't have Linux running under any of them. It's not due to lack of
hardware, either - it's time.

If someone can submit differences for other architectures including notes
for common hardware quirks, then I can include them in the Kernel-HOWTO,
but they would have to go in a different section near the end because most
people don't run x86 and don't want to get caught up in a gigantic case
statement while reading a document.
