If I do an additional:

git grep -l "asm volatile" | while read file
do
sed -i -e 's/asm volatile/asm_volatile/g' $file
done

on the tree...

No changes for:

-#define asm_volatile_goto(x...) do { asm goto(x); asm (""); } while (0)
+#define asm_volatile_goto(x...) do { asm __inline__ goto (x); asm (""); } while (0)

I suppose all our goto's are small now (my tree includes Nadav's patch
to static_cpu_has).
