You can remove everything under arch/ and include/ you don't need. But you'll
be very disappointed when you notice that you haven't saved a couple dozen megs
of space by doing that. The arch-specific code is _very_ small compared to all
the driver code, which is valid for most architectures.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
