This breaks compiling drivers/video/fbdev/c2p*, as the functions in
drivers/video/fbdev/c2p_core.h are no longer inlined, leading to calls
to the non-existent function c2p_unsupported(), as reported by KISSKB:

I managed to reproduce this with gcc version 8.3.0 (Ubuntu
8.3.0-6ubuntu1~18.04.1) , and bisected the failure to commit
025f072e5823947c ("compiler: enable CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING forcibly") .

Marking the functions __always_inline instead of inline fixes that.
Shall I send a patch to do that?

Thanks!
