_v * ~0UL doesn't seem right and non intuitive.
What's wrong with:
unsigned long _mask = ~(long)(_i | _s - 1 - _i) >> BITS_PER_LONG - 1;

and why OPTIMIZER_HIDE_VAR ?
Could you remove '&' ?
since in doesn't work for:
struct {
int fd[4];
...
} *fdt;
it cannot be used as array_acces(fdt->fd, ...);

Could you please drop nospec_ prefix since it is misleading ?
This macro doesn't prevent speculation.
I think array_access() was the best name so far.
