But we do have drivers/macintosh already, we can use it or eventually
sub-divide it for ppc-only and m68k-only drivers, keeping common drivers
at the root level. Also, we could re-merge some drivers, like the zilog
driver (especially since it doesn't use DMA, i never finished it) and the
ADB mouse/keyboard stuff.
