This doesn't make me happy - I've been thinking about this for some time,
and I think it's completely wrong for drivers to hook into asm-offsets.

Looking at the top-level Kbuild file, it looks like it would be easy
for emif to auto-generate its own offsets.h header - it looks like it's
a matter of using linux/kbuild.h to get the definitions, compiling to
assembly (using $(call if_changed_dep,cc_s_c)) and then converting the
assembly to the header file format ( using
$(call filechk,offsets,__ASM_OFFSETS_H__), replacing __ASM_OFFSETS_H__
with a more appropriate symbol.)

Could you please check whether this is possible, so we don't end up
needing to hook lots of driver-specific assembly offsets stuff into
the arch files?
