Bug#321940: linux-2.6: [powerpc] per flavour archs should have asm-ppc64 symlink too.

Package: linux-2.6
Severity: normal

Hi, with current 2.6.12, the symlinks for asm-* are fine, and i belive it is
enough to ship -2 as is, as we don't have ppc64 kernels yet.

Now, the current setup includes asm-ppc and asm-ppc64 in the common kernel
header files, but the per flavour include only the asm-ppc symlink.

I believe that we should either provide both, or provide one or the other
depending on being a 64bit or 32bit flavour. Providing both is way easier to

The same happens for the asm symlink too, but i believe that it should be set
correctly for 64bit or 32bit flavours, not sure though, but this will need
checking on the way to -3.
