The pattern i like is

#ifndef gigantic_page_supported
#define gigantic_page_supported gigantic_page_supported

static inline bool gigantic_page_supported(void)
{
return true;
}

#endif

instead of _HAVE_ARCH_GIGANTIC_PAGE_SUPPORTED.

you should restore other users of gigantic_page_supported() not just
this. That will just make your earlier patch as removing
gigantic_page_supported from every architecture other than ppc64 and
have a generic version as above.
