Hmm, is it possible to have a arch/acorn dir for the shared bits between the
arch, rpc and a7000's (note that a7000 is currently a seperate kernel, this
perhaps should be investigated on if a merge of A7000 and RPC is possible) I
presume the split is mostly based on having a GENERIC kernel for each?

Yep, would make management of the arm ports easier.
