This also makes sense and answers my questions if drivers will work with
all kernels. Are there no problems with 68000 code and Coldfire here?

68000 drivers can work on any 680x0. As a result :
- Falcon users always use non-optimized drivers :-(
- Official drivers can't run on ColdFire (without emulation)

This is why the build process has to be reworked. At least to provide various variants of the drivers optimized for each CPU.
