No problem. I've made bigger thinkos on a regular basis. :-(

That is five architectures out of of sixteen. You might argue that
s390 does not need mtd (which I'm not even sure about), but arm is
definitely missing and surely some more.

Can you add the other architectures or explain for each missing one,
why this was not necessary? Maybe I am just stupid.
