1. If the first part of the if were an ifdef instead it would result in a code size reduction as well as a runtime performance gain.

You should spend a little time playing with an optimizing compiler. They're capable of working out when a condition will always be false.
Yes, but in the case where R10000_LLSC_WAR is true, but cpu_has_llsc returns false there are still two wasted tests, and two blocks of code that the compiler can't optimize out.
