It's equivalent code, my point was that '#ifdef CONFIG_XYZ' is the shorter, more canonical
pattern we use in the kernel most of the time, it's shorter, easier to read. We only use
defined() for longer preprocessor directive conditions, and it's a pattern for "there's
something more complex here than a simple CONFIG_XYZ dependency".

Anyway, Thomas fixed it up in the latest iteration.

Thanks,

Ingo
