Note that by somebody's "brillant" idea "inline" is a macro that expands
to "inline __attribute__((always_inline))". That said, "inline" in a
function prototype doesn't make much sense anyway. In this case simply
removing the qualifier will let code use the implementation from
As a side note it's quite amazing how duplicate copies of a function get
scattered throughout the tree...
