It is:

include/asm-[xxx]
arch/[xxx]

There are problems with seperating drivers apart. We dont want to
split the master tar file as we often need to see changes for other
ports to avoid accidents, or to change all ports for a new function
parameter. Nobody stops end users getting a full tree and splitting
copies out for friends or for ftp.
