I meant C files being compiled directly from arch/arm (no links).

For headers, if they are specific to arm or arm64, just copy the header
in each place (e.g. not using regs->pstate in the arch/arm code with
#ifdef's). For the rest, if they cannot be made generic, one way is to
have a dummy file including the arm equivalent:

#include <../../arm/include/asm/xen/events.h>

Passing -I is dangerous as you actually need "-I arch/arm/include" which
could bring other files.
