Subject: [PATCH 13/17] x86: ia32entry.S: fold IA32_ARG_FIXUP macro into its callers

Use of a small macro - one with conditional expansion - does more harm
than good. It obfuscates code, with minimal code reuse.

For example, because of obfuscation it's not obvious that
in ia32_sysenter_target, we can optimize loading of r9 -
currently it is loaded with a detour through ebp.

This patch folds IA32_ARG_FIXUP macro into its callers.

No code changes.
