I wouldn't be too sure about that. Have you diffed extracted tarballs of
kernel-headers for both architectures and did it return only .PKGINFO
Reason for asking this is the /usr/include/asm directory. Though these
files are just stupid header files, the asm directory is usually taken
from architecture-specific includes.
