Whoops. One of my colleagues suggested that i should name the file
arch-390x.h. Reason for this is that the architecture name "s390"
describes the 31bit (compat) architecture mode in userspace, and "s390x"
the 64 bit mode. To make it a bit more complicated, the architecture in
the kernel is named "s390". That's because in the beginning the kernel
could run in 31bit or 64 bit mode, and there can be only one
architecture name. When support for running 31bit kernels was removed
years ago, the architecture name s390 was kept because renaming the
architecture would have been quite some fun. So in short:

Kernel s390 == 64 bit only
Userspace s390 == 31 bit
Userspace s390x == 64 bit

So i tried renaming the header file, noted that the Makefile just uses:

nolibc_arch := $(patsubst arm64,aarch64,$(ARCH))
arch_file := arch-$(nolibc_arch).h

which would then need special handling. Obviously i failed to revert the
change completely during rebase.

So it should be:

>> +#elif defined(__s390x__)
>> +#include "arch-s390.h"

I'm fine with both - either you fixing it up or me sending a v2.
