I took a quick look at it and the header re-org looks good.
I like that you added the 'mach-' prefix to the directory names.

But I also noticed several changes like this:
-#include <asm/landisk/iodata_landisk.h>
+#include <mach/iodata_landisk.h>

In this case you _know_ that this is a landisk so
the less magic option would have been the longer
include form like this:
+#include <mach-landisk/mach/iodata_landisk.h>

It would be preferable that we use the gcc -I
directive:

-Iarch/sh/include/mach-$MACH

only to automagically select between identical named
files for the different platforms and not like
the above where we use it simply to cut off the include
path a little.

Another note is that you decided to move the generated
file over to arch/sh/include too.
I really do not know if I think this is the right approach.
What I like is that we some day end up with generated files
in a common place. But I have not really thought it through
and thus I have no final idea how to do it.
So in other words - keep it as is and lets re-visit it should
we one day decide to do this in a common way across architectures.

Thanks for looking into this so quickly!

Sam
