OK, but ug.  That's some quite nasty code you've found there.

it would come out better if that x86-specific code was pulled out into
separate functions like

#ifdef CONFIG_X86
static int do_x86_stuff(...)
{
	...
	return 1;
}
#else
static int do_x86_stuff(...)
{
	return 0;
}
#endif


static int uvesafb_setpalette(...)
{
	if (do_x86_stuff(...) == 0) {
		<do non-x86-specific-stuff>
	}
}
