    It would be even more simple and future proof if we could in
    some way do it so "#include <foo/bar.h>" would pick up bar.h from
    asm-$(ARCH) if it exists and otherwise pick up asm-generic/bar.h.

    Then we could include the generic one in asm-generic and
    all architectures would include it except those that provide their
    own variant. The asm-$(ARCH) specific files would need a way to include
    the asm-generic version.

    I have no idea handy for how to actually implment this but wanted
    just to share the idea.
    The trade-off is that if it gets too iplicit then suddenly users will
    loose overview of how it works.
