Is it possible to replace __force_order with a symbol that the
linker scripts defines?
Or just define __force_order in the linker script to some
'random' constant (eg 0).

ISTM that adding "m"(__force_order) to asm volatile can do no harm.
Especially for accesses to CRn and MSRn (etc) which might have obscure
side effects.
