How about if I define inline functions, and #defines to proxy to them?
Something like:

static inline u32 host1x_sync_cfpeek_ctrl_r(void)
return 0x74c;

static inline u32 host1x_sync_cfpeek_ctrl_cfpeek_ena_f(u32 v)
return (v & 0x1) << 31;

I'd use the macros in .c files. That way the references will look
familiar to reader of .c files, but we can still get the benefits of
compiler processing (type checking, better error codes etc) and gcov
coverage tracking.
