I looked around and it seems like there's nothing we can do. Weird
thing is, LLVM allows const-initialization but not member-definition
with that macro. I really don't understand why..

I somehow think adding MAX_CONST which uses __builtin_constant_p and
assert_cc() is the easiest way here. That is, we use MAX_CONST() for
all cases where MAX fails. I think this is the easiest way to
guarantee no-one else changes the code to use MAX() again.
Furthermore, it guarantees that MAX_CONST is *really* called with
constant arguments.
