Subject[PATCH 4.9 04/66] compiler, clang: always inline when CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING is disabled
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Rientjes <rientjes@google.com>

commit 9a04dbcfb33b4012d0ce8c0282f1e3ca694675b1 upstream.

The motivation for commit abb2ea7dfd82 ("compiler, clang: suppress
warning for unused static inline functions") was to suppress clang's
warnings about unused static inline functions.

For configs without CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING enabled, such as any non-x86
architecture, `inline' in the kernel implies that
__attribute__((always_inline)) is used.

Some code depends on that behavior, see
https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/6/13/918:

net/built-in.o: In function `__xchg_mb':
arch/arm64/include/asm/cmpxchg.h:99: undefined reference to `__compiletime_assert_99'
arch/arm64/include/asm/cmpxchg.h:99: undefined reference to `__compiletime_assert_99

The full fix would be to identify these breakages and annotate the
functions with __always_inline instead of `inline'. But since we are
late in the 4.12-rc cycle, simply carry forward the forced inlining
behavior and work toward moving arm64, and other architectures, toward
CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING behavior.
