Sent a patch that resolves this.  Not completely happy with it
because of the added #ifdefs, but not sure how else to resolve
this.   allmodconfig is creating config combinations that don't
happen in a normal build (at least currently)-- 64-bit build
that enables EPAPR_PARAVIRT but not PPC_BOOK3E_64.
