I did now.

Having drm_debug_enabled() as a macro vs. as an inline function does not
seem to make a difference, so I think the inline is clearly preferrable.

However, for example

	unlikely(foo && drm_debug & DRM_UT_DP)

does produce code different from

	(foo && drm_debug_enabled(DRM_UT_DP))

indicating that the unlikely() within drm_debug_enabled() does not
propagate to the whole condition. It's possible to retain the same
assembly output with

	(unlikely(foo) && drm_debug_enabled(DRM_UT_DP))

but it's unclear to me whether this is really worth it, either
readability or performance wise.
