Question what hardware does the kernel support?

Is there a comprehinsive list somewhere of what hardware the Linux kernel supports? I saw the HCL but where do I look for more information?

God bless,

The very long kernel changelogs will also tell you this. Or you can always pull up or do a make menuconfig or xconfig and just go thru all the different settings when compiling a new kernel..
