The problem is that it's hard to integrate this with the existing
source-tree-based arch logic, which needs to know whether to build or
not to build the corresponding .c file. Just adding arch-specific
files won't do anything to turn off building of those .c files. It
also doesn't seem to scale well to multiple archs that need this sort
of logic...
