    x86/asm: Use register variable to get stack pointer value
    ms commit 196bd485ee4f (part)
    Currently we use current_stack_pointer() function to get the value
    of the stack pointer register. Since commit:
    f5caf621ee35 ("x86/asm: Fix inline asm call constraints for Clang")
    ... we have a stack register variable declared. It can be used instead of
    current_stack_pointer() function which allows to optimize away some
    excessive "mov %rsp, %<dst>" instructions:
      -mov    %rsp,%rdx
      -sub    %rdx,%rax
      -cmp    $0x3fff,%rax
      -ja     ffffffff810722fd <ist_begin_non_atomic+0x2d>
      +sub    %rsp,%rax
      +cmp    $0x3fff,%rax
      +ja     ffffffff810722fa <ist_begin_non_atomic+0x2a>
    Remove current_stack_pointer(), rename __asm_call_sp to current_stack_pointer
    and use it instead of the removed function.
