Subject: [PATCH] x86: Avoid undefined behavior in macro expansion

C11 standard (at says that ## operator (paste) has undefined
behavior when one of the result operands is not a valid preprocessing

Therefore the macro expansion may depend on compiler implementation
which may or no preserve the leading white space.

Moreover other places in kernel use CONCAT(a,b) instead of CONCAT(a, b).
Changing favors concise usage.
