Yes, either that or like Markus says, just create a block/bochs-probe.c
and block/bochs.h and leave the existing files where they are. Maybe
give us a bit more time to come to a conclusion. I could live with

block/qed.h isn't used outside the driver. It's just that the driver
consists of multiple files. If you decide to move files, of course you
shouldn't only move qed.c, but qed-*.c, too.
