Hiding the indirections through the function table in the header via
defines or inline functions would make things a lot cleaner in my
opinion and as a bonus avoid this addition to the sparse tree.

That is the approach taken by the paravirt_ops stuff so it would also
make it easier to integrate with that in the future.
