I was under the impression the "CONFIG_PDC_NARROW" option would only
"activate" itself in one boxes that needed it. Ie it does grow the kernel
and AFAIK is really only useful for Cxxx models.
Ryan, do I have it right?

I am pretty sure K/D/R-class boxes have a different source base for PDC
which "properly" support wide-mode PDC calls.
