Huh.  iirc, I added those do {} while(0)s to keep checkpatch happy.
Either it's gotten smarter, or something is off.

At any rate, the whole macro menagerie in here concerns me a bit and I'm
reluctant to change it until I have some time to refresh my memory on
what this code is doing.

It would be helpful if you could give scripts/objdiff a try on the
before and after effects of your patch.  If the object code doesn't
change, then we can be more confident that the patch is just style
changes.  Please also check when SKEIN_UNROLL_* is set/unset.

I really should put the patch series together to move this driver out of
staging.  Then maybe folks will stop running checkpatch against it :-)
