so basically there's x86-specific files stuck in common code location ?

wouldnt it make sense to move those to an x86/ subdir then ?

if there's any common code version, it would make more sense to base it on the 
asm-generic work that's in the kernel now than on an arch that, while some 
people started off copying it, all have diverged at some point.
