Thanks for the advice,

I'll do a), starting with the arch_remap macro, adding the 30 "empty"
arch/x/include/asm/mm-arch-hooks.h files, and implementing arch_remap
for powerpc.

Then, if the first patch is accepted, I may move the arch_*() stuff
defined in include/asm-generic/mm_hooks.h into
include/linux/mm-arch-hooks.h and filled some
arch/X/include/asm/mm-arch-hooks.h. The file
include/asm-generic/mm_hooks.h will then become empty, and been removed.

Cheers,
Laurent.
