It because the caller of kvm_arm_vcpu_get/set_events() is in "virt/kvm/arm/arm.c".
the virt/kvm/arm/arm.c will used by both arm64 and arm.
so It needs to add kvm_arm_vcpu_get/set_events() for the 32 bits, however, kvm_arm_vcpu_get/set_events() will directly return,

I attached the build erros below:

I will continue check below comments, thanks
