Does if (do { } while (x, 0)) work?
And no, on SMP it should always return false. The point is, the warning
is only valid if we are on an SMP box, this is useful for spin_locks()

if (WARN_ON_SMP(!spin_is_locked(lock)))
fail();
We don't want to fail.

That spin_is_locked(lock) on !SMP returns 0 every time.
