I'm having trouble cross-compiling for riscv, but I'm unable to recreate
the build error when I compile for x86_64. However, I'd like to
understand this error so I can fix it properly.

Is the problem here due to the "const u8 field" parameter? Instead of a
constant variable, does this need to be a constant literal value for
u8p_replace_bits()? I don't think that parameter changed in the last
patch of the series, so why is the build error occurring for the last
patch and not this penultimate patch here? Would qualifying the
quad8_control_register_update() function with "__always_inline" resolve
this issue?
