How about out-of-lining it:

#ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_ENTRY
extern void warn_bogus_irqrestore();
#endif

static __always_inline void arch_local_irq_restore(unsigned long flags)
{
       if (!arch_irqs_disabled_flags(flags)) {
               arch_local_irq_enable();
       } else {
#ifdef CONFIG_DEBUG_ENTRY
               if (unlikely(arch_local_irq_save() & X86_EFLAGS_IF))
                    warn_bogus_irqrestore();
#endif
}
