No, even after removing the ifdefs around the build rules as you
suggested (and v3's fixes for the resulting build issues, notably
changing some -y's to -$(CONFIG_X86_FEATURE_NAMES)), the makefiles still
manage to not build mkcpustr or cpustr.h, because nothing depends on it.

I could change the build rules to generate an empty cpustr.h and avoid
this ifdef, but that'd require an additional ifdef block in the Makefile.
