That's why I suggested moving the define to arch-ia64.h.

Let me put it this way...
ia64: asm/regs.h
x86_32: public/xen.h
x86_64: public/xen.h
ppc64 will follow x86: public/xen.h

Why should ia64 be different? Won't it make all of our lives easier if
all the ports define structures in asm header files of the same name?
