OK, will something like the following acceptable to you:

arch/x86/include/asm/barrier.h:

#define __arch_native_word(t) (sizeof(t) == sizeof(char) || sizeof(t) ==
sizeof(short) || sizeof(t) == sizeof(int ) ||
sizeof(t) == sizeof(long))

include/linux/compiler.h:

#ifndef __native_word
# ifdef __arch_native_word(t)
# define __native_word(t) __arch_native_word(t)
# else
# define __native_word(t) (sizeof(t) == sizeof(int) || sizeof(t) == sizeof(long))
# endif
#endif
