  Remove COMPAT_43 from GENERIC (and other kernel configs). For amd64 there's
  an explicit comment that it's needed for the linuxolator. This is not the
  case anymore. For all other architectures there was only a "KEEP THIS".
  I'm (and other people too) running a COMPAT_43-less kernel since it's not
  necessary anymore for the linuxolator. Roman is running such a kernel for a
  for longer time. No problems so far. And I doubt other (newer than ia32
  or alpha) architectures really depend on it.
  This may result in a small performance increase for some workloads.
  If the removal of COMPAT_43 results in a not working program, please
  recompile it and all dependencies and try again before reporting a
  The only place where COMPAT_43 is needed (as in: does not compile without
  it) is in the (outdated/not usable since too old) svr4 code.
  Note: this does not remove the COMPAT_43TTY option.
