Yes, you're right -- the parens there aren't a macro parameter, they're the
assembly syntax for constant-offset loads. I guess I'd just assumed Christoph
was referring to some magic in how asm-offsets gets generated, as I've never
actually looked inside that stuff. I went ahead and just tested this

$ git diff | cat
diff --git a/arch/riscv/kernel/asm-offsets.c b/arch/riscv/kernel/asm-offsets.c

DEFINE(TASK_THREAD_SP_RA,

and it causes the expected failure

$ make.cross ARCH=riscv -j1

^~~~~
make[1]: *** [scripts/Makefile.build:369: arch/riscv/kernel/entry.o] Error 1

so I'm going to leave it alone. I'll submit a v2 with a better error message
and a cleaner sc.w/sc.d.
