I'm sorry but I think that is a rather bad idea. Moving userland sources
into "src/sys" feels just wrong. I think that "src/common" reflects quite
well that these sources are shared between kernel and userland.

I don't think this is a good enough reason. Updating part of your
source tree has always been a problematic pratice.
