[llvmlinux] [RFC HACK] Make clang hate percpu.h less in 32-bit mode

Neither clang nor GCC like this very much with -m32:

	long long ret;
	asm ("movb $5, %0" : "=q" (ret));

However, GCC can tolerate this variant:

	long long ret;
	switch (sizeof(ret)) {
	case 1:
		asm ("movb $5, %0" : "=q" (ret));
	case 8:
		;
	}

Clang, on the other hand, won't accept that because it validates the 
inline asm for the '1' case *before* the optimisation phase where it 
realises that it wouldn't have to emit it anyway.

This patch puts some casts in to make clang less unhappy. I don't like
it very much.

Note that we don't have the same problem for the "=r" case, where a 
64-bit value *also* doesn't fit. This is because even if it *does* have 
to emit it, clang will happily and silently do so even though it's 
clearly bogus:

	long long ret;
	asm ("movl $5, %0" : "=r" (ret));

 $ clang -c -o q.o q.c -m32
 $ gcc -c -o q.o q.c -m32
q.c: In function ‘foo’:
q.c:6:1: warning: unsupported size for integer register
