OK - I will try to channel it through another tree.

If you could fine time to review "[PATCH 38/38] asm-generic: introduc Kbuild.generic"
I would be happy.
The patch itself is simple - but it is more if it really
is relevant. I am not sure how many files from asm-generic that
in reality end up being used by all architectures.

A possibility is to extend this so we can drop a specific file
from a few architectures could be added.
We could for example use this to add preempt.h for all architectures
except x86 that provide a x86 specific version.
But I decided to start simple.

Btw. I should have made this patch separate from the rest.
I just added it on top of the others since it touched the same area.
I will keep it separate in future submissions.
