Well, I suppose some header should provide a definition like:

#ifdef CONFIG_X86_64
#define cpu_x86_64 1
#define cpu_x86_64 0

and the you can remove the horrible #ifdef clutter and make the quoted
function look like:

static inline unsigned int get_nmi_count(int cpu)
return cpu_x86_64 ? cpu_pda(cpu)->__nmi_count : nmi_count(cpu);

Much better -- isn't it?
