I believe we had a long talk about this before.

copy the current {i386,amd64}/mca.h to x86/mca.h
new {i386,amd64}/mca.h == #include <x86/mca.h> (no copyright notice, etc)

just like we do for the pc98 stuff.  The mca.h file would live in

That was the consensus of the conversation at the time.  There's some
support for this already in the tree for pc98 vs i386 stuff.  There's
work in flight for mips and powerpc that do similar things for the
64-bit versions (the mips stuff is on the drawing board, the powerpc
stuff is in nathanw's branch).  Plus this dove-tails into the
MACHINE_CPUARCH stuff I've worked on with the tbemd branch that's
headed into head as soon as the mips merge is sorted out.

In src/include/Makefile we have:
.if defined(_MARCH)
	${INSTALL} -d -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m 755 \
	cd ${.CURDIR}/../sys/${_MARCH}/include; \
	${INSTALL} -C -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m 444 *.h \
.if exists(${.CURDIR}/../sys/${_MARCH}/include/pc)
	${INSTALL} -d -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m 755 \
	    ${DESTDIR}${INCLUDEDIR}/${_MARCH}/pc; \
	cd ${.CURDIR}/../sys/${_MARCH}/include/pc; \
	${INSTALL} -C -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m 444 *.h \

we could add

.if defined(_MCARCH)
	${INSTALL} -d -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m 755 \
	cd ${.CURDIR}/../sys/${_MARCH}/include; \
	${INSTALL} -C -o ${BINOWN} -g ${BINGRP} -m 444 *.h \

just after it, plus a few touch-ups elsewhere in the file (like

And just to recap, MACHINE_ARCH is the binary architecture that's
being built.  MACHINE_CPUARCH is where the source for a group of
related MACHINE_ARCH live.  MACHINE_CPUARCH is mips for all mips
platforms, but MACHINE_ARCH is mipsel or mipseb (and maybe mips64el
and mips64eb) for those platforms.  To apply this pattern to intel,
MACHINE_ARCH={i386,amd64} and MACHINE_CPUARCH=x86.
