Yes, and that gives a false imprsesion of some code.  For example, the
SBus code is outside arch/ so it's usually thought of as MI, even
though it never gets used on anything but a SPARC and thus really is MD
code in some senses.

I'm not saying anyone else should.  But that's when it became
unignorably clear NetBSD was going in a direction I didn't want my own
playing-with machines to go, so that's when I stopped following.
