I would suggest that you instead add a macro LOAD_CPU_AND_NODE \reg
and have that macro contain the alternative. It can switch between
RDPID and LSL. This way you avoid duplicating the rest of it.
This should end up in the same header as __getcpu() -- it probably
makes sense to just move __getcpu() for this purpose.
Also, hpa and Nadav, shouldn't asm/inst.h end up in macros.S?
