Subject[RFC 6/8] x86: removing unneeded new-lines
Date
GCC considers the number of statements in inlined assembly blocks,
according to new-lines and semicolons, as an indication to the cost of
the block in time and space. This data is distorted by the kernel code,
which puts information in alternative sections. As a result, the
compiler may perform incorrect inlining and branch optimizations.

This patch removes unneeded new-lines and semicolons to prevent such
distortion.

Functions such as nfs_io_completion_put() get inlined. Its overall
effect is not shown in the absolute numbers, but it seems to enable
slightly better inlining:

text data bss dec hex filename
18148228 10063968 2936832 31149028 1db4be4 ./vmlinux before
18148888 10064016 2936832 31149736 1db4ea8 ./vmlinux after (+708)

Static text symbols:
Before: 39649
After: 39650 (+1)
