Defining any platform specific handlers at compile time is a problem for
generic kernels.  If you want a generic ia64 kernel (CONFIG_IA64_GENERIC=y)
to run on any hardware then all the platform specific code should be
chosen at run time, not at compile time.  That is, use ia64_platform_is()
to select platform specific code at run time.
