Subject: [PATCH 1/2] compiler-gcc.h: Added new macro for gcc attribute

Added __mode(x) into compiler-gcc.h as part of a cleanup task I've
taken up, to replace gcc specific attributes with macros.

Last accepted patch I sent into linux-next for crypto: d8c34b949d8c:
crypto: Replaced gcc specific attributes with macros from compiler.h

The last commit of this task that went through you: 52f5684c8e1ec
kernel: use macros from compiler.h instead of __attribute__((...))

The next patch is for cleaning up the m68k subsystem and it requires
a new macro to wrap __attribute__ ((mode (...)))
