Major reorganization in prep for appserver merge

1) Now that our cross compiler is actually i686 instead of i386, I've moved
kern/arch/i386 to kern/arch/i686, changing the references in the top level
GNUmakefile as well as the Makefile for the cross compiler.

2) I reorganized all of the frontend syscall stuff from being sparc/ramp
specific to being platform independent.  This mostly required moving stuff out
of the sparc specific frontend.c/h files and putting them in
kern/src/frontend.c and kern/include/frontend.c files respectively.
Additionally, I moved stuff from the sparc specific syscall.c file directly
into kern/src/syscall.c, taking care to move all of the 'helper' functions that
were in this file into frontend.c.  That may not be the very best place for
them, as they don't really do anything frontend specific, but for now it seems
to make sense because the only syscalls that use them are those being forwarded
to the frontend appserver.

3) I started messing with Paul's ne2k driver to get it to forward system calls
the way the unified app server expects them.  I have things compiling (probably
not working), but I talked to Paul and he said this was really old code and I
should actually just rebase from the lwip branch and work off the code from
there.  So now I am committing so I can do just that...

Made fork/exec slow but correct.

Since mmap is actually used now, we need to scan the whole
virtual address range to determine what to copy or unmap.
But this is really slow, so need to walk the pagetable for
efficiency (using env_user_mem_walk or the like)

they be 256 byte alligned. We had previously discussed this, and

X byte aligned memory. This is no longer the case with the new
slab allocator, so the driver no longer functioned correctly

We now directly request pages, to ensure proper alignment.
