I don't know about a right way, but since this code is both gcc and
x86 specific, I think I would just write something along the lines of
#define EMIT_ASM(NAME, INSNS) \
extern unsigned char start_ ## NAME, end_ ## NAME; \
add_insns (&start_ ## NAME, &end_ ## NAME - &start_ ## NAME); \
asm ("jmp end_" NAME "\; start_" NAME ":\;" INSNS "\; end_" NAME ":"); \
} while (0)
