Subject[PATCH v2 6/6] x86: bug.h: use asm_inline in _BUG_FLAGS definitions
Date
This helps preventing a BUG* or WARN* in some static inline from
preventing that (or one of its callers) being inlined, so should allow
gcc to make better informed inlining decisions.

For example, with gcc 9.2, tcp_fastopen_no_cookie() vanishes from
net/ipv4/tcp_fastopen.o. It does not itself have any BUG or WARN, but
it calls dst_metric() which has a WARN_ON_ONCE - and despite that
WARN_ON_ONCE vanishing since the condition is compile-time false,
dst_metric() is apparently sufficiently "large" that when it gets
inlined into tcp_fastopen_no_cookie(), the latter becomes too large
for inlining.

Overall, if one asks size(1), .text decreases a little and .data
increases by about the same amount (x86-64 defconfig)

$ size vmlinux.{before,after}
text data bss dec hex filename
19709726 5202600 1630280 26542606 195020e vmlinux.before
19709330 5203068 1630280 26542678 1950256 vmlinux.after

while bloat-o-meter says

add/remove: 10/28 grow/shrink: 103/51 up/down: 3669/-2854 (815)
...
Total: Before=14783683, After=14784498, chg +0.01%
