Which is of course true today but a big change from the way the kernel
has evolved.  We used to put all of the include files (or others) that
were unique to a platform (or unused outside of the kernel) together
in lower level directories.  Just a bit of trivia so eveyone understands
why it was done the "old" way and why it may be hard to change to the
"new" way :-).
