Are you asking about layout in the source tree, or the names of the .o
files in the libraries?  For the latter, I think I would prefer your
second suggestion; for the former, I see no need to have the files with
the weak^H^H^H^Hindirect references exist at all, except transiently
during the build.  Most syscalls are done in a similar way - see
lib/libc/sys/ - and I can't see why something similar
couldn't be done here.
