This seems to me as a workaround. The real fix would be to use
for functions requiring to be inlined and just compile everything with -O0 -g.
info '(gcc)Function Attributes'
Generally, functions are not inlined unless optimization is specified.
For functions declared inline, this attribute inlines the function
even if no optimization level was specified.
But `always_inline' has been discussed on linux-kernel million times.
I have not googled out a resolution why it is not applicable to this problem,
do you know why?
