Certainly with optimizations, but also with various debug options and
sanitizer instrumentation. (FTR, the config used:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200820144931.GA4120397@elver.google.com/3-a.txt
on GCC 10.1 with GCC 11's KCSAN patches backported.)

Checking GCC's sources, the inlining policy here is that the compiler
tries to sanitize as many functions as possible, and if only 'inline'
is used, it'll avoid inlining such a function into a 'no_sanitize'
function in favor of instrumenting it.

With a normal non-debug config this should therefore never happen.

Thanks,
-- Marco
