Subject: Re: [PATCH 05/23] selftest: vm: add unlikely() to BUG_ON()

This selftest runs in userspace..
So, we should define the macro somehow, as i.e:
rseq/rseq.h:#define rseq_unlikely(x)    __builtin_expect(!!(x), 0)

[selftests]$ make vm/map_populate
cc     vm/map_populate.c   -o vm/map_populate
vm/map_populate.c: In function ‘parent_f’:
vm/map_populate.c:26:7: warning: implicit declaration of function
‘unlikely’; did you mean ‘unlinkat’? [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
   if (unlikely(condition)) {     \
vm/map_populate.c:38:2: note: in expansion of macro ‘BUG_ON’
  BUG_ON(ret <= 0, "read(sock)");
/tmp/cc7evGVG.o: In function `parent_f':
map_populate.c:(.text+0x3d): undefined reference to `unlikely'
map_populate.c:(.text+0xbb): undefined reference to `unlikely'
map_populate.c:(.text+0x135): undefined reference to `unlikely'
map_populate.c:(.text+0x1b0): undefined reference to `unlikely'

Not sure if we care for this at all for userspace test.
I don't mind as it runs each time by kbuild robot and cumulatively may
save something. But it's better be at least compile-tested.
