x86/bug: Macrofy the BUG table section handling, to work around GCC inlining bugs

As described in:

77b0bf55bc67: ("kbuild/Makefile: Prepare for using macros in inline assembly code to work around asm() related GCC inlining bugs")

GCC's inlining heuristics are broken with common asm() patterns used in
kernel code, resulting in the effective disabling of inlining.

The workaround is to set an assembly macro and call it from the inline
assembly block. As a result GCC considers the inline assembly block as
a single instruction. (Which it isn't, but that's the best we can get.)

This patch increases the kernel size:

text data bss dec hex filename
18146889 10225380 2957312 31329581 1de0d2d ./vmlinux before
18147336 10226688 2957312 31331336 1de1408 ./vmlinux after (+1755)

But enables more aggressive inlining (and probably better branch decisions).

The number of static text symbols in vmlinux is much lower:

Before: 40218
After: 40053 (-165)

The assembly code gets harder to read due to the extra macro layer.

[ mingo: Rewrote the changelog. ]
