IS_ENABLED(option) was backported as defined(option), but
because of the indirection, option was evaluated too early,
resulting in #if defined(1) for defined options, which failed
the compilation with the following error:

error: operator "defined" requires an identifier

Backport IS_ENABLED from the current kernel instead.
