The only assignment to have_simd is guarded by a if
(IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_xxx)) conditional, which is optimized away if the
Kconfig symbol is not set. Usually, the compiler uses this information
to infer that have_simd is a compile time constant '0', and optimizes
away all the code that depends on have_simd being true. I haven't
figured out yet why this doesn't work as expected on some versions of
GCC, since it is a very common pattern throughout the kernel.
