Description

Some time ago, while looking at others (BSDs, Linux) removing 386 CPU
support from kernels I took a look what it will take to remove it from
DragonFly kernel. It was quite easy, but as I don't see much point of it
at that moment (as I remove all *_CPU options except I686_CPU from my
kernels anyway), I didn't bother to submit it. But I also remember some
discussion that DragonFly doesn't run on 386 CPUs anyway although I can't
find the reference.

It has been sitting my patch queue since then and as I want to cut my
queue to minimum, I'm submitting it now - to either commit or to drop
from my patchqueue.
