Compiler cannot currently check this, only linker, because the function
is always declared in mvebu's cpu.h.

See https://lore.kernel.org/u-boot/20211214134536.2baeb2a0@thinkpad/
where I also proposed empty static inline implementations for non-A375
platforms, but Stefan thinks it's not an issue currently, because it
does not cause any regressions, I guess. U-Boot's build system
currently does not allow for -O0, you can choose only -O2 or -Os.

We can always add empty static inline implementations into mvebu's
cpu.h when it becomes an issue, or you can send a patch now, if you
want a completely perfect code ASAP.

But note that for that you'll need to check other functions there, as
well. (If you look at
there are functions declared, without guarding #ifs, for all mvebu
platforms: A3k, A7k, A37x and A38x.)
