Yes. Resurrected is not the right word here, sorry...

Anyway, could you take a look at the git tree at
branch x86_merge and comment? It doesn't include stuff from this
thread (yet); what it does is
* further headers cleanups
* sys-{i386,x86_64} merged; all[1] x86-specific code taken first
to arch/um/sys-x86 and then (by final commit) to arch/x86/um. IMO that's
the right place for it - target-dependent code is better off not hidden
from maintainers of the target arch. When we get other ports to working
shape, their target-specific parts ought to go into arch/<target>/um.
* hopefully saner treatment of sigcontext; should make life easier
for other ports.

[1] theoretically - in reality we still have more than a few x86-isms in
"generic" um headers in arch/um/include/asm.
