Taking Simon's feedback into consideration...

I very often see changes like this and have to check the implementation
of BUG_ON() et al. to make sure it evaluates it's arguments even when
debugging is disabled.

Even if it is always guaranteed to do so, like me people will be unsure
forever and have to check.

That makes auditing code and validating things more time consuming and

I also think the code as written now looks a lot nicer.

So I'm not applying this, sorry.
