How about this instead:

Arch-indepedent parts:

kernel/ipipe/Kconfig (formerly ipipe/Kconfig)
kernel/ipipe/Makefile (formerly ipipe/Makefile)
kernel/ipipe/core.c (formerly kernel/ipipe.c)
kernel/ipipe/generic.c (formerly ipipe/generi.c)

Arch-dependent parts:

arch/i386/kernel/ipipe-core.c (formerly arch/i386/kernel/ipipe.c)
arch/i386/kernel/ipipe-root.c (formerly ipipe/x86.c)

Seems to me that the above makes more sense. Albeit you would have
parts of the module in kernel/ipipe/* and the rest in
