I'm not sure it is worth doing that.

What is the point in doing the following when you know that regs->esr and regs->dsisr are exactly 
the same:

 > -	err = ___do_page_fault(regs, regs->dar, regs->dsisr);
 > +	if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_4xx) || IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_BOOKE))
 > +		err = ___do_page_fault(regs, regs->dar, regs->esr);
 > +	else
 > +		err = ___do_page_fault(regs, regs->dar, regs->dsisr);
 > +

Or even

 > -	int is_write = page_fault_is_write(regs->dsisr);
 > +	unsigned long err_reg;
 > +	int is_write;
 > +
 > +	if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_4xx) || IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_BOOKE))

Artificially growing the code for that makes no sense to me.


To avoid anbiguity, maybe the best would be to rename regs->dsisr to something like regs->sr , so 
that we know it represents the status register, which is DSISR or ESR depending on the platform.
