Here's a *untested* patch.

In particular, I worry that I'd need to add a "#include
<linux/compiler.h>" to some header file, although I suspect it gets
included some way regardless.

And when I say "untested", I mean it. I verified that this makes
*some* difference to the generated code, but I didn't actually check
if it really matters, or if it actually compiles and works in general.

Caveat tester,
