    Personally, I prefer:

    /usr/local/-architecture-/include/sys-include/asm-architecture
    /usr/local/-architecture-/include/sys-include/linux

    If you install a lot of cross compilers, you might find that that
    layout is the most logical.

    Not sure if RedHat does this or not, but something that I would always
    recommend is avoided, is assuming that /usr/src/linux is a symbolic
    link to the current kernel source code.
