If the kernel is built with CONFIG_ISCSI_IBFT=m, the
setup_[32|64],c code would depend on the 'find_ibft' symbol which is
in a module (in the iscsi_ibft.c), which is not available during
the bootup phase and not linked to vmlinuz.
This isn't an issue if the module is built with CONFIG_ISCSI_IBFT=y of
course.

Or did by 'your .c file' mean a new file in arch/x86/kernel directory?
