I agree with David, I think it's too deep a directory structure.  I doubt
we'll ever have much gnu kernel code and this just makes it a little more
painful to get around.

If you want to cleanup the sys/ namespace, we really should have an arch
directory as NetBSD does.  Or we should move the remaining filesystems
into fs/, which has not been completed.
