Prior to commit fcc8487d477a ("uapi: export all headers under uapi
directories"), genhdr-y was meant to specify generated UAPI headers.

- generated-y: generated headers (other than asm-generic wrappers)
- header-y   : headers to be exported
- genhdr-y   : generated headers to be exported (generated-y + header-y)

Now headers under UAPI directories are all exported.  So, there is no
more difference between generated-y and genhdr-y.

We see two users of genhdr-y, arch/{arm,x86}/include/uapi/asm/Kbuild.
They generate some headers in arch/{arm,x86}/include/uapi/generated/
directories, which are obviously exported.

Replace genhdr-y with generated-y, and deprecate genhdr-y.

The correct path is arch/{arm,x86}/include/generated/uapi/

I will fix it.

Good catch. It eases the understanding of all those mechanisms.
