ok, but that's a separate change then

i think the relevant decision for out-of-tree is
if we want to keep

%.o: $(ARCH)/%.s

which means VPATH is needed, or if it's ok to have
.o files under the $(ARCH) dir, so the rules are just

%.o: %.s

%.o: %.sub

(of course setting $(OBJS) is more tricky then)

i think we can then do out-of-tree independently from
the subarch changes.
