It will warn on "asm volatile (" which it shouldn't.

We use architecture specific defines to distinguish between 32 bit and
64 bit code in user space visible header files, since we cannot use
CONFIG_64BIT. So this will give us false positives as well.
Maybe don't warn for header files in include/asm-* ?
