I want to leave as much compiler's freedom as possible,
and the optimization criteria depends on CONFIG option.

When CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE is chosen,
the optimization should respect the code size over performance,
and the compiler may prefer not inlining it.


So, the basic idea is, use __always_inline
only when otherwise the builds would be broken.
