    The reason is that arch-i386/kernel/ is run through CPP,
    and it includes asm/thread_info.h and asm/page.h, which end up including
    "mach_page.h" (which this patch series introduces). There is a version
    in both mach-default/mach_page.h and mach-xen/mach_page.h, so the -I is
    necessary for non-Xen sub-arches as well.

    I guess the conservative approach would be to only add this -I for the target, assuming there are no later compile problems. On
    the flip-side, would you want C and Asm code getting a different set of
    includes from "manually" preprocessed-files? I would think you'd want
    either defines/includes at all, or to have them identical.

    The CPPFLAGS assignment also appears to make the previous two lines
    redundant, since a_flags and c_flags (which is what actually gets used
    for compilation) end up having CPPFLAGS incorporated into them.
