The basic idea of src/external was good - however, the split into
various "externals" (like src/external, src/crypto/external,
src/sys/external) makes it a pain. One very painfull example is ipf, it
is split into src/external and src/sys/external - basically impossible
to work with.

I think it is time to reconsider the layout, and while there also discuss
the stupid src/common as well.

Either we want standalone kernel source (then common should die or at least
move below src/sys), or we do not care, in which case src/external for 
everything should be fine.

The current state is a pain.
