We are preparing to submit these instruction support for binutils,
however it is still necessary. Supposing that it is supported in future
gcc version, we can not drop existing gcc 12/13 supporting to compiling
kernel with LoongArch architecture.

Maybe there will be human readable code like this:
#if GCC_SUPPORT_KVM_INSTR
...
#else
asm volatile (".word "
...
#endif
