zstd fixes for v5.16-rc1

Fix stack usage on parisc & improve code size bloat

This PR contains 3 commits:

1. Fixes a minor unused variable warning reported by Kernel test robot [0].
2. Improves the reported code bloat (-88KB / 374KB) [1] by outlining
some functions that are unlikely to be used in performance sensitive
3. Fixes the reported excess stack usage on parisc [2] by removing -O3
from zstd's compilation flags. -O3 triggered bugs in the hppa-linux-gnu
gcc-8 compiler. -O2 performance is acceptable: neutral compression,
about -1% decompression speed. We also reduce code bloat
(-105KB / 374KB).

After this commit our code bloat is cut from 374KB to 105KB with gcc-11.
If we wanted to cut the remaining 105KB we'd likely have to trade
signicant performance, so I want to say that this is enough for now.

We should be able to get further gains without sacrificing speed, but
that will take some significant optimization effort, and isn't suitable
for a quick fix. I've opened an upstream issue [3] to track the code size,
and try to avoid future regressions, and improve it in the long term.
