BTW, this reminded me a related topic that I can't recall being ever
mentioned on l-k: BUG_ON can also be optimized away. So people should be
careful not to do write this:

BUG_ON(test_and_set_bit(p))

but to write this instead:

if (unlikely(test_and_set_bit(p))
BUG()
(in short the check inside a BUG_ON must be strictly read-only since
it's not guaranteed to be computed)
