Can you make this a Kconfig option defined in arch/Kconfig or mm/Kconfig
and selected by the architectures?

Maybe the move of this function can be split into another prep patch,
as it is only very lightly related?

Not sure if it is wrіtten down somehwere or just convention, but I
general see cpp defined statements aligned with spaces to the
one on the previous line.

Except for these nitpicks this looks very nice to me, thanks for doing
this work!
