I think yes. I've touched a lot of legacy code, so it would be nice to
know what I may have broken. For example, i8254 and RTC drivers now more
dependent on attaching to PnP/ACPI reported hardware. I am not sure if
there still any legacy system which not doing that. The oldest system I
have tested was P-III Celeron. Unluckily my small development SSD is too
"large" for my Pentium board's BIOS. :)

There is still work planned, but I hope it won't require major changes
in already written code.
