The rationale for the macro is to tell inline asm writers whether
they can/should use .cfi* directives in their inline asm or not.
If you do say:
asm volatile ("pushl %eax; pushl %edx; call foo; addl $8, %esp" : ...);
and .cfi_directives are emitted, then it is desirable to tell
the unwinder about the CFA offset changes etc.  After all, this was
the main motivation behind switch to .cfi_* directives, without
them inline asm just can't hook into the containing function's .eh_frame.

But, when .cfi_* directives are not emitted, using .cfi_rel_offset
etc. in the inline asm will result in assembler errors, as they can't
be used without the containing .cfi_{start,end}proc.

IMHO either we define __GCC_HAVE_DWARF2_CFI_ASM only in the
	&& (flag_unwind_tables
	    || (flag_exceptions && ! USING_SJLJ_EXCEPTIONS)))
case (and, possibly, also use .cfi_* directives only in that case,
as the .cfi_* directives emit both .eh_frame and .debug_frame, not just
.debug_frame), or come up with some inline asm modifier which will expand to
a comment char if .cfi_* directives aren't used and to nothing if they are
