Yeah, I fully understand that. Actually these are inclusive #ifdef ..
which actually doesn't hurt. (Unlike #ifdef .. #else .. #endif).

But since the compiler can actually optimize it away, and it's quite
obvious pxa3xx specific by if (cpu_is_pxa3xx()) .. , I'm a bit intended
to remove them away, no?
