Inside of a function, if(IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_FOO)) or the respective IS_BUILTIN is
preferred over #ifdef because it provides better compile coverage and better
readability. Also, IS_ENABLED() is nice when you want to check if something
is builtin or module, without having to write a complex expression.

If you just replace the #ifdef with #if IS_BUILTIN as Felipe suggested, I see
no real benefit, but it would be nice to write this as

void __init tegra_hotplug_init(void)

if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ARCH_TEGRA_2x_SOC)) && tegra_chip_id == TEGRA20)
tegra_hotplug_shutdown = tegra20_hotplug_shutdown;
if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ARCH_TEGRA_3x_SOC)) && tegra_chip_id == TEGRA30)
tegra_hotplug_shutdown = tegra30_hotplug_shutdown;

which completely avoids all preprocessor conditionals and replaces them
with compile-time choices based on constant expressions to eliminate the
code paths for disabled platforms.
