Excuse me, I am not quite familiar with our version merging, I guess
your meaning is "this file will be removed, and the related contents
will be in another .S file, so we need not fix it within this file".

If what I guess is correct, I support your recommendation (and if what I
guess is incorrect, please let me know, thanks). :-)

BTW: I still use next-20130927 tree for it, and another next-tree branch
which is next-20131025 do not have this file.
