AFAIR, the -tiny tree already implements some kind of empty BUG/PAGE_BUG/WARN_ON macros.

When optimizing for size that way, your suggestion would result in bigger code.


If there are no side effects, my suggestion produces zero code.

And after a quick view, I haven't seen any WARN_ON users in 2.6 that
seem to rely on side effects.

Then there should be no size difference, either.
