arch/um/include/sysdep -> sysdep-<target>
include/asm-um/arch -> ../asm-<target>

Note that uml has two halves - kernel-side and userland-side. The latter
is build with host search path, etc., with addition of arch/um/include.
The former is normal kernel code, with addition of arch/um/include again.
So some things in that sucker are for kernel-side and some - for userland
