This really seems like mis-use of likely/unlikely, in the middle of a
sequence of operations that will always be run when this function is
called. I think you should remove the likely from this helper,
especially, and control the branch from the branch point.

Yes, I know it came from here, but likely/unlikely are for branch
control, so they should encapsulate everything inside the if, unless
I'm mistaken.

You should have kept the unlikely here, and not had it inside the
helper (as per the previous patch. Also, why wasn't this change part
of the previous patch?
