In the cover letter I mentioned i686. Full details are:
$ uname -i -m -o -p -r -s -v
Linux 2.6.38-0.rc2.git9.1.fc15.i686 #1 SMP Tue Feb 1 03:11:57 UTC 2011
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Ie, current rawhide, no local patches, no config changes.

$ grep OLPC.*= /boot/config-2.6.38-0.rc2.git9.1.fc15.i686

But wouldn't I there simply get told to disable these OLPC options on
If you explain the situation fully, maybe not. Grant Likely drives a
lot of the work in that area and is rather reasonable in my opinion.
Perhaps if you expand the changelog in the patch to point out that
distro kernels will turn those options on even though most x86
machines aren't OLPC, a reduction to a KERN_WARN would be ok.
You never really know until you try.
