Given this costs 1uS in a path that is not performance critical is it
worth putting the #ifdef/#endif in instead of having one set of code that
works for all ?

so any processor variant with power management can do the right thing.

Neither of course are bugs you have added, just things you have moved that
seem worth asking about.
