  1. x86: newb question - how to build everything which deps on x86

    Hi -

    I am working on cleaning up include/asm-x86/desc_defs.h specifically
    replacing the fields a,b with more descriptive fields and including some
    other cleanups for using idts. I have some changes locally but as I was
    working on this I found that I had to make some changes to
    kernel/apm32.c kernel/cpu/common.c vmi and lguest (they all used the ->a
    and ->b fields directly).

    There are probably more things in the kernel that depend on x86 and
    might break with my change. Is there some config flag I can flip to
    build all x86 related things? I tried a few patterns with grep, but I
    just want to make sure I don't break anyone's stuff.

    Thanks,
    Joe
