The common infrastructure shared by two mechanisms is PMD swap entry.
But I didn't find there are many places where the common infrastructure
is used. So I think it may be over-engineering to introduce a new
config symbol but use it for so few times.

Unfortunately, I think it is not a easy task to wrap all C code via
#ifdef in header files. And it may be over-engineering to wrap them
all. I guess this is why there are still some #ifdef in C files.
