It seems like good practice to include these even if they're not
currently doing anything - for example, if ACPI support were added to
the driver then you could get an ACPI kernel OF disabled.

Note that one of the things these macros are supposed to do (but don't
yet IIRC) is allow for dead code elimination to discard references to
things automatically even without the being ifdefed out.
