How about collapsing the "have_function_descriptors()" check into
setup_function_descriptor()?

static void *setup_function_descriptor(func_desc_t *fdesc, void *dst)
{
	if (__is_defined(HAVE_FUNCTION_DESCRIPTORS)) {
		memcpy(fdesc, do_nothing, sizeof(*fdesc));
		fdesc->addr = (unsigned long)dst;
		barrier();
		return fdesc;
	} else {
		return dst;
	}
}

This hunk seems like it should live in a separate patch.
