Re-targeting to Alpha 3

2010-06-21 - ogasawara:
Even though we're still waiting for the spec to be written to know the exact details behind any requested changes, I'm writing down the following initial information:

1) We've already removed the 386 kernel flavour in Maverick. This was done based on hallway discussions at UDS-Maverick.

2) :~/ubuntu-maverick/debian.master/config$ grep -rn "CONFIG_M586=" *
i386/config.flavour.generic:7:CONFIG_M586=y

Currently in Maverick, for i386 we enable the CONFIG_M586 kernel config option which is described as follows:

config M586
        bool "586/K5/5x86/6x86/6x86MX"
        depends on X86_32

2010-07-23 - ogasawara:
As of linux-2.6.35-10.15, we've enabled CONFIG_M686 in the kernel.
