__builtin_constant_p checks for constants

Built-in Function: int __builtin_constant_p (exp)
You can use the built-in function __builtin_constant_p to
determine if a value is known to be constant at compile-time and
hence that GCC can perform constant-folding on expressions
involving that value. The argument of the function is the value
to test. The function returns the integer 1 if the argument is
known to be a compile-time constant and 0 if it is not known to
be a compile-time constant. A return of 0 does not indicate that
the value is not a constant, but merely that GCC cannot prove it
is a constant with the specified value of the -O option.
