There's tons of them if you just do an allmodconfig build.

This suddenly enables a lot of random 16-bit ISA driver crap on
x86-64, and not surprisingly it doesn't build cleanly, nor can most of
those drivers work.

I'll just put a smattering of the warnings at the bottom, it scrolls
off the screen.

These really are drivers that should not have been enabled. They are
legacy crap, it's not worth anybodys time to try to "fix" them, they
just shouldn't be on.
