Correct; I will fix this.

These header files have the defines for checking if we are running on

Currently this driver is built if HYPERV is defined. I agree with you
that I should have Kconfig entry in arch/x86. Since the rest of the
Hyper-V drivers are still in staging, I am thinking that perhaps we should
have a different config switch - HYPERV_CLKSRC. I will go ahead and
spin a new version of this patch with this change.
