I don't think any architecture except ppc32 has traditionally had
arch/$ARCH in its include path, and it would probably come as a surprise
to many kernel developers if this were used more.

Currently, there seem to be hardly any users of this "feature" in ppc32
that can't be trivially converted to including local files, so I'd 
rather not see this moved over to arch/powerpc.
