In the leon.h case, it is included because it needs to disable interrupts.
Including sparc.h seems to make sense to me.

I had to include leon.h into my application because I needed access to
certain registers, and the leon.h header has a bunch of defines and
bitfields that are useful for that sort of thing. There isn't any comment in
the header itself _not_ to include it in an application like what other
headers have, so I thought it was ok. 

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm still new to the whole embedded scene.
