Track generated header files which aren't already in genhdr-y, alongside
generic-y wrappers in the */include/generated/[uapi/]asm/ directories.
Currently only x86 generates extra headers in these directories, for the
purposes of enumerating system calls for different ABIs, and xen
hypercalls.

This will allow the asm-generic wrapper handling code to remove stale
wrappers when files are removed from generic-y, without also removing
these headers which are generated separately.
