Just to clarify why this is good: There is a patch from Remis
to kbuild that can automatically create the trivial wrappers,
so we can remove arch/powerpc/include/asm/setup.h from the
kernel once that patch is applied.

I was also planning to submit a series to clean up more powerpc
in this way headers where applicable, see

The series needs some forward porting to 2.6.31 as well as testing.
If you or someone else wants to help with that, please go ahead!
