To be fair, you told the compiler to do that with your use of fancy-pants ||
instead of optimisable |.  Try this instead:

static __always_inline int in_irq_or_nmi(void)
{
	return in_irq() | in_nmi();
}

0000000000001770 <test_fn>:
    1770:       65 8b 05 00 00 00 00    mov    %gs:0x0(%rip),%eax        # 1777 <test_fn+0x7>
                        1773: R_X86_64_PC32     __preempt_count-0x4
#define in_nmi()                (preempt_count() & NMI_MASK)
#define in_task()               (!(preempt_count() & \
                                   (NMI_MASK | HARDIRQ_MASK | SOFTIRQ_OFFSET)))
static __always_inline int in_irq_or_nmi(void)
{
        return in_irq() | in_nmi();
    1777:       25 00 00 1f 00          and    $0x1f0000,%eax
}
    177c:       c3                      retq   
    177d:       0f 1f 00                nopl   (%rax)
