Hmm... maybe my comments is not quite precise, what I want to say is:

- another architectures tool chain (e.g. arm-linux-gnueabi-) support it.
but our tool chain (arc-elf32-) will cause issue.

- in kernel source, excluding "arch/" sub directory, excep this file and one x86 drivers, no one use macro in this way, now.
and in "arch/arc/" sub-directory, no one use macro in this way, too.
the related find command: "find | grep "\.S$" | grep -v "/arch/" | grep -v "Documentation" | xargs grep define"

So at least, for kernel itself, better change the using way (only 2
areas use the macro, and the macro only contents 2 lines, so it is
acceptable enough to expand it).


Anyway, maybe it is also the tool chain's bug (so I include related arc
tool chain guys in this mail).


Thanks.
