In the kernel, this means that the only functions that will ever be inlined are those defined in header files,
What about the the functions in the same .c file as their callers? There are plenty of those in the kernel.
Does -combine totally combine, like #including all the files into a master file, or does it keep them properly modular? I hate having inline functions in header files because the problems of interference between the header file and the file into which it is #included limits what the inline function can do. But if -combine solves that problem, I can see having usable source code libraries.
