No, but the users of those macros need to be considered.

See above - line 39 in there is
and line 14 in arch/microblaze/include/asm/pgalloc.h is
It's conditional upon CONFIG_MMU in there, but so's the use of
pte_offset_map() in arch/microblaze/kernel/signal.c
So it shouldn't be a problem.

Yep - see above re major chain of indirect includes conditional upon CONFIG_BLOCK
and its uses in places that only build with such configs. There's a plenty of
similar considerations outside of arch/*, unfortunately...
