Would not be possible to make that subpackage into syslinux-nonlinux.noarch?
In some "expanded interpretation" this stuff is "noarch" (well, maybe
only pretty close).  Surely a hack but maybe better than other hacks?
As things stand right now with this split in an addition to problems
with live images any x86_64 installation configured with
'exclude=*.i?86' will fail to update with broken dependencies.
