This really makes the fast exit utterly pointless, and we might as well
rip all that out.

This feature is configurable, right?

Here the branch overhead is imposed even if the feature is configured 
out. You should consider conditionally defining a macro like some other 
features do.

Furthermore I think we still support old toolchains that don't know what 
push and pop mean. You should use the legacy syntax instead.

Make sense, as discussed on patch number one, I will write custom
assembly for each architecture when BUG_ON is not required. I will try
to use macros to make it easier to read.
