<asm/if.h> is a fine place to put the macros.

However, open-coding

#include <asm/if.h>

in the places which are known to use pushfl/popfl is fragile. Because
someone could later do something odd which results in the generation of an
unmassaged pushfl/popfl.

You need a magic bullet. Which is why I suggest including if.h via the build
system - making it truly global.

__ASSEMBLY__ and __KERNEL__ are provided via the build system as well, and
are in scope during that first inclusion. So it _should_ work....
