If you prefer the definitions in asm-generic that is fine with me.
I'll give it a try to see if it still compiles.

That is true, it should work without the #define in the generic header.

I have tried that, doesn't work. The reason is that the
__PAGETABLE_xxx_FOLDED defines to not have a value.

#define __PAGETABLE_P4D_FOLDED
#define __PAGETABLE_PMD_FOLDED
#define __PAGETABLE_PUD_FOLDED

While the definition of CONFIG_xxx symbols looks like this

#define CONFIG_xxx 1

The __is_defined needs the value for the __take_second_arg trick.
