Yes, that is my intention.  For 2.6.15, at this stage, some of the
header files might end up looking like:

#ifdef CONFIG_PPC32
#include <asm-ppc/foo.h>
/* contents of asm-ppc64/foo.h */

if it looks like doing a proper merge will require too many changes.
But at least it gets the files out of include/asm-ppc64.
