I think that's fine. At least on both ARM multiplatform and ARM64 it is
always defined by definition, and when build testing, it should be possible
to enable it on other architectures as well.

That doesn't work unless you also put the calls into the clk interface
inside of ugly #ifdef

That would be ok as well, probably not necessary.

Ok, thanks.
