I have patch in queue which removes dependancy of linuxator on COMPAT_43
( - its tested on amd64/i386 but havent
tried alpha (not even building it - anyone willing to test this?)

and I plan to work to split COMPAT_43 into whats necessary for tty stuff and
the rest. after this we can remove COMPAT_43 from even GENERIC imho.

I dont think that moving in the direction you suggest is correct.
