Initially it has no impact. This first step pretty much just
combines the 2 directories, it doesn't attempt to do a fine
grained merge of each file. (It does factor out identical
files - quite a few in arch/m68k/lib for example).

I'll look at doing what I can as I work through merging all the
underlying pieces :-)
