I'm using Andi Kleen's LTO tree:
https://github.com/andikleen/linux-misc/tree/lto-420-1

with a few other patches:
https://github.com/andikleen/linux-misc/pull/27

You'll need to add the following to your .config:
CONFIG_LTO_MENU=y
CONFIG_LTO=y

These warnings are bogus, they replace warnings that flagged against
spinlock.h.

I'll see if I can improve it.

Hmm, I didn't see problems on PPC64 as that already uses an inline
function. I'll address this in another patch for the PPC32 case.

I moved it to keep it close to the usage of it.

I suppose the new implementation should be in the same place though.

Whoops, I thought I ran checkpatch, but clearly, I forgot. I'll
resubmit.
