The problem here (I think) is that it's preferable for stray files in
the kernel tree to have no effect and, with this scheme, stray files
in arch/*/include/asm could affect the build. So something explicit
has an advantage. I just think there should be way to say "this
asm-generic file should affect all arches unless they generic-n or
override-generic-y it or whatever".
