ARM for starters, and there are likely to be others in the future, too.
Grepping would have made this pretty apparent.

Yes, given that they're all SH IP blocks. Although if there's many more
of them then of course putting them in their own subdirectory is an
option, too.

No.

The alternative is creating a shared architecture directory, which
doesn't really scale well given how these blocks can be arbitrarily
reused across different architectures -- but it's still something we
might have to look at depending on what else pops up that can't be
cleanly shared through the current scheme. You're of course welcome to
dig up the discussions in the archives when the ARM SH-Mobile code was
introduced in the first place.
