If this is some new arch that will be supported on i386 then I would
suggest i386/linuxbios/.

I think the question to be asked here is that does all i386
architectures need this functionality that you extracted. I have nothing
against modularizing code, in example if you compare contents of the efi
and pc directories you will notice that efi does not need most of the
stuff that is present on pc.

Actually I think better name for pc would be pcbios...

If you want to share code with LinuxBIOS why not just share those files
located on i386/pc/.
