[PATCH v4 1/9] Makefile: Prepare for using macros for inline asm




Using macros for inline assembly improves both readability and
compilation decisions that are distorted by big assembly blocks that use
alternative sections. Compile macros.S and use it to assemble all C
files. Currently, only x86 will use it.
