Yes, I think abuse of using likely/unlikely() should be avoided (I agree that
some odd likely/unlikely() exists in the current code, that should be cleaned up).

However, likely/unlikely()s are also clearly highlight critical/corner paths).
I personally think it should be used in case-by-case basis rather than a unified
conclusion ("that makes the code harder to read").
