We don't actually need the ifdefs here - the kernel will compile OK
without them.  This means that a programming error will result in a
link-time error rather than a compile-time error but that's a pretty
small cost to pay for keeping the header files neater.

This could+should be __initdata.

Do we really need any of the ifdefs?  A non-CMA kernel will print "0K
cma-reserved" but is that harmful?

This is all __init code so the additional code bloat isn't a
significant issue.
