I made a patch which enables linuxator to work without COMPAT_43 option in
kernel. Thus we're almost free to remove COMPAT_43 from generic as nothing
widespread uses it no more. removing COMPAT_43 has advantage of speeding up the
kernel (take a look at gepid() function for example) and removing old code is
always good :)

the patch itself is a rewrite from old patch from dragonfly (I dont know author
so sorry) and it was tested with "chroot /compat/linux /bin/bash; playing" and
playing video with realplay - both worked as expected. the test was done on
UP/i386 so I'd appreciate some testing on SMP etc. it currently supports just
i386 but porting it to other archs should be quite easy

thnx for suggestions, comments etc
