I've extensively removed about 1K LoC of stubs (glues)
including e.g., register_filesystem(). There are still stubs
need to be tracked, like file mount code, memory management,
but it can be improved later I think.

I still have a couple of comments, which I haven't addressed
with the code (below). will work on too.

* build system (Makefile)
- parallel build issue
- cross-build issue
- missing dependency detection

* code location
- under arch/ or tools/
