This really only tidies up the split out of arch/i386 in the previous release.
It also backs out a fix for the migration_mask physical/logical CPU problems
in 2.5.6 in favour of the official fix.

In response to will it work questions, this is the list of supported types

3430/3360 (Level 4): Works (tested up to 2 way), need sim710 driver for
internal SCSI chip.
345x (Level 5): Works (tested up to 10 way), need NCR_D700 or BusLogic SCSI
35xx (Level 5): Should work up to 16 way (not tested), need NCR_D700 or
BusLogic SCSI card.
4100 (Level 5): Should work (not tested), need NCR_D700 SCSI card. Q720
driver is broken currently, so must use D700 or BusLogic SCSI card.
51xx (Level 5): Should work up to 32 way (not tested). No Q720 driver is a
bit of a problem here since I don't think they support anything else.

The patch is in two parts this time: The i386 sub-architecture split is
separated from the addition of the voyager components

(The split diff is pretty huge because it's actually moving files about). You
must apply the split diff before applying the voyager one.
