Subject[RFC 2/8] x86: bug: prevent gcc distortions
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.

The solution is to set an assembly macro and call it from the inlinedv
assembly block. As a result GCC considers the inline assembly block as
a single instruction.

This patch increases the kernel size:

text data bss dec hex filename
18126824 10067268 2936832 31130924 1db052c ./vmlinux before
18127205 10068388 2936832 31132425 1db0b09 ./vmlinux after (+1501)

But enables more aggressive inlining (and probably branch decisions).
The number of static text symbols in vmlinux is lower.

Before: 40015
After: 39860 (-155)
