    I really liked the proposal that Matthew Wilcox came up with:

    Todays hirachi:
    include/linux => Kernel wide internal
    include/sub-system => sub-system internal
    include/asm-$(ARCH) => arch specific
    include/asm => symlink to include/asm-$(ARCH)
    include/asm-generic => default arch implementations

    Additional hirachy:
    usr/include/linux-abi => kernel wide ABI
    usr/include/abi-$(ARCH) => arch specifics ABI
    usr/include/arch-abi => symlink to above

    I've lost the original email, so the names differ, but the
    principle is the same.

    Then we could slowly migrate the user level stuff to usr/include.
    Do you see this as a sensible solution also for ipv6?
