Worked fine for me, too...

I didn't do this. Nonetheless, the file exists.

I am using modules, but I do not build sd or aic7xxx as
modules.

I *usually* patch, however, this particular time I had
fallen a few versions behind, and decided it was time to
start fresh.

Or, a hex was placed and aic7xxx_seq.h was swallowed up on
your machine. Though unlikely, it seems more likely to me.
After all, it is easier to destroy than to create.
