We also have a number of different machines for which we use a
single kernel/userland compile, ranging from old K6's and PII's (and
perhaps a few Pentium MMX's) to recent PIII's. There are large numbers of
these machines, and no way to reasonably make variant kernels for them
all. I'm sure other people running large numbers of servers accumulated
over time have a similar problem (Yahoo?) So I'd add one vote for making
to easy (or at least not hard) to include multiple architecture
optimizations in one kernel/userland release, ala Solaris.
