The commit message in v1 was more informative, I'll change this back for v3:

--

Clang's integrated assembler does not allow assembly macros defined
in one inline asm block using the .macro directive to be used across
separate asm blocks. LLVM developers consider this a feature and not a
bug, recommending code refactoring:

As binutils doesn't allow macros to be redefined, this change adds C
preprocessor macros that define the assembly macros globally for binutils
and locally for clang's integrated assembler.
