I wanted to avoid adding another toplevel directory for no good reason.
You can think of it as emulation or just as compatibility layer. It is
abstract, but needs more glue code before it can be used on non-x86. For
example, you might have to emulate some x86 hardware and the
pass-through of in/out would certainly not work.
src/common could be considered as well, given that it is code that can
be used both in userland and kernel.
