where is the difference between platform and machine?
can't we use: cpu == arch (== machine?): - i386 - amd64 platform: - i386 - amd64 - vkernel and have everything covered?
does it *have* to be a different name for platform and cpu? i mean, that's two different namespaces, i do not see any harm using i386 as a platform name. my goal is to keep things as easy as possible. a cross-build should just require TARGET_ARCH=amd64, or fwiw, TARGET_PLATFORM=vkernel. but the nomenclature should be sensible and follow POLA.
