Shocked :)
I never realized these files were added by my commit and it never got caught in
reviews :(

Probably because git log --stat or git show (stat part) doesn't show
files with zero
changes. Probably need to fix that too?

@Arnd: Can you please apply following patch to fix SPEAr's issues
point out by Linus?

SPEAr13xx: Add header files

Don't know how they got added, obviously my fault :)
But nobody could even catch them in reviews.

Remove them.
