This patch actually resulted in a slight size increase on PPC, most
likely because of the new warn_on_slowpath() that isn't used:

text data bss dec hex filename
8059224 1820584 529064 10408872 9ed3a8 vmlinux.mainline

This caused problems on powerpc, since bug.h ends up being pulled into
some assembly files. The #defines in there have been fine, but the
external declaration threw it off. (They need them to get to some of the
include/asm-powerpc/bug.h contents, but it pulls in the generic one as
well).

Easiest is probably to encapsulate the whole file in #ifndef __ASSEMBLY__.
