As described in:

77b0bf55bc67: ("kbuild/Makefile: Prepare for using macros in inline assembly code to work around asm() related GCC inlining bugs")

GCC's inlining heuristics are broken with common asm() patterns used in
kernel code, resulting in the effective disabling of inlining.

The workaround is to set an assembly macro and call it from the inline
assembly block - which is pretty pointless indirection in the static_cpu_has()
case, but is worth it to improve overall inlining quality.

The patch slightly increases the kernel size:

 text     data     bss      dec     hex  filename
18162879 10226256 2957312 31346447 1de4f0f  ./vmlinux before
18163528 10226300 2957312 31347140 1de51c4  ./vmlinux after (+693)

And enables the inlining of function such as free_ldt_pgtables().
