I'm trying to do kernel modifications so that initrd is supported, which
will make installations easier.

I was a bit surprised that these weren't architecture neutral to begin
with.  Why is this dependant on the arch? The code I've found for other
archs is in arch/*/kernel/setup.c.

How safe is it for me to replicate the code from, say, the sparc port?  Is
there anything I should be aware of?
