That is nicer.
The implementation of hypercall.S is significantly different between
arm32 and arm64, so hypercall.S is going to be harder to read.
However hypercall.S is just one file and it's not going to grow much,
while we might have many more C source files in common between the two
architecures, so I think that your approach is going to be cleaner in
the long term.
I'll make the change.
