[PATCH v4 8/9] x86: cpufeature: use macros instead of inline assembly




Use assembly macros for static_cpu_has() and call them from inline
assembly.  This not only makes the code more readable, but also improves
compilation decision, specifically inline decisions which GCC base on
the number of new lines in inline assembly.

The patch slightly increases the kernel size:

   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
18162879 10226256 2957312 31346447 1de4f0f ./vmlinux before
18163528 10226300 2957312 31347140 1de51c4 ./vmlinux after (+693)

And enables the inlining of function such as free_ldt_pgtables().
