The #ifdefs exist because these headers are originally from IRIX and the
equivalent IRIX definitions were converted to Linux-style.  For the
IA64 version keeping those ifdefs around obviously made no sense since -
since IP35 (Origin 300/3000 series) is MIPS-based, so it was dropped
again.

There is some out-of-tree support for IP35 so I'd like to drop this
patch.
