I just wanted to point out that this patch changes something that works into something else that works also. The change is somewhat arbitrary.  It should be accompanied with a recommendation in the BSP developer documentation.  There should be also a ticket for this to change everything from #ifdef XYZ to #if XYZ, if we agree that this is actually better.  Only for BSP options, for stuff which is available via <bsp.h>, or does it stop, when we change all the #if defined(RTEMS_SMP) to #if RTEMS_SMP?

For example BSP_FDT_IS_SUPPORTED is also used in libbsd:


Some BSPs use a define in <bsp.h> another uses a BSP option.
