What about:
amgia*.h ans-lcd.h backlight.h heathrow.h keylargo.h pmac_feature.h
prep_nvram.h gg2.h uninorth.h and maybe ppc405_dma.h as well.  I think I
might have missed a few pmac-specific platform headers in there...

Like I said on IRC, I don't think this really helps much.  I will
conceed that in _devel we have more .h files in include/asm-$(ARCH) than
anyone else, but if we're going to do some organization, lets do more
than throwing lots of files in one directory, which could keep on

I sort of like the include/asm-ppc/platforms symlink idea, but I forget
if kbuild-2.5 works well with this or if it is/was painful.  Keith?

Barring that, maybe make processor, platform and peripheral dirs?
