Thanks for the explanation. Given that we have the asm-generic version of
kvm_para.h, I don't see why we can't just export linux/kvm_para.h
unconditionally and fix the few remaining architectures by adding generic-y
lines to their Kbuild files.

Something like below (I also removed what look like dead references to
asm-$(SRCARCH) in the srctree)...
