I'm not crazy about it myself (see below)

My preference would be one of the following:

1. All of the interfaces defined in arch/s390/include/asm/ap.h
are implemented in a file that is built whether ZCRYPT is
built or not.

2. The drivers/s390/crypto/ap_asm.h file containing the functions
that execute the AP instructions are made available outside of
the AP bus, for example; arch/s390/include/asm

I requested this from the maintainer but was told we don't want to
have any crypto adapter support when the host AP functionality is
disabled (CONFIG_ZCRYPT=n). This makes sense, however; I think it is
a bit confusing to have a header file (arch/s390/include/asm/ap.h)
with interfaces that are conditionally built.

This is why I chose the ifdeffery (as you call it) approach. The
only other solution I can conjure is to duplicate the asm code for
the AP instructions needed in KVM and bypass using the AP bus
interfaces.
