This really sucks. As this is a constant source of trouble, we might better
bite the bullet and get rid of this fancy macro completely. It's not that
we add these patch patterns every other day.

So a good old:

/* xor %eax %ex */
static const unsigend char patch_qspinlock[] = { 0x31, 0xc0 };

and then in the patch code:

return paravirt_patch_insns(ibuf, len, patch_qspinlock,
patch_qspinlock + ARRAY_SIZE(patch_qspinlock));

might be less trouble than dealing with that clever inline assembly
