You've made be look at some gcc output (it's raining).

The gcc 7.5.0 I have handy probably generates the best code for:

unsigned char q_2(unsigned int pc)
{
        unsigned char rctx = 0;

        rctx += !!(pc & (NMI_MASK));
        rctx += !!(pc & (NMI_MASK | HARDIRQ_MASK));
        rctx += !!(pc & (NMI_MASK | HARDIRQ_MASK | SOFTIRQ_OFFSET));

        return rctx;
}

0000000000000000 <q_2>:
   0:   f7 c7 00 00 f0 00       test   $0xf00000,%edi     # clock 0
   6:   0f 95 c0                setne  %al                # clock 1
   9:   f7 c7 00 00 ff 00       test   $0xff0000,%edi     # clock 0
   f:   0f 95 c2                setne  %dl                # clock 1
  12:   01 c2                   add    %eax,%edx          # clock 2
  14:   81 e7 00 01 ff 00       and    $0xff0100,%edi
  1a:   0f 95 c0                setne  %al
  1d:   01 d0                   add    %edx,%eax          # clock 3
  1f:   c3                      retq

I doubt that is beatable.

I've annotated the register dependency chain.
Likely to be 3 (or maybe 4) clocks.
The other versions are a lot worse (7 or 8) without allowing
for 'sbb' taking 2 clocks on a lot of Intel cpus.
