I think it is just matter of disallowing such construct in places where 
compiler expects constant expression.

If accepted, the expression is apparently evaluated in compile time. See 
[1].

I've spotted in include/generated/autoconf.h following line:

#define CONFIG_ILLEGAL_POINTER_VALUE 0xdead000000000000

It corresponds to following kconfig entry:

config ILLEGAL_POINTER_VALUE
        hex
        default 0 if X86_32
        default 0xdead000000000000 if X86_64

Grepping shows more: grep -r --include=Kconfig -3 -P '^\s*hex' .

Anyway do you really need to handle undefined case? If not, the macro 
can stay simple, w/o hacky constructs.


Regards

Andrzej
