This is not a normal macro that is used globally. I like the referenced
commit better, because it shows where it is used what is happening.
Note, TP_fast_assign is just a parameter into another macro, and using
do { } while (0) is not really going to help change anything. This
doesn't even remove a checkpatch warning.
