I remember a reason to stick to the asm version. There is a time
interval between the (early) CPU feature being enabled and the (early)
alternatives being applied.

For the early ones, interrupts remain disabled between CPU feature
enabling and alternative application. However, if you enable lockdep, it
will do some interrupts_disabled() checks which become
local_irqs_disabled_flags(local_save_flags()). If one is using the
alternative and the other the static branch, lockdep will emit a warning
about it.

So, I tried moving all irqflags functions but using the static branch
for arch_local_irq_restore() slows things down a bit, and I'm not sure
having arch_local_irq_save() use static branch while
arch_local_irq_restore() uses alternative makes much sense.

In the end, I'll stick to the ASM + alternative version to avoid the
lockdep issue and have consistant manipulation of the irqflags.

Thanks,
