AFAIK, -Wunused-function is supposed to be suppressed for
"static inline" functions:

     Warn whenever a static function is declared but not defined
     or a non-inline static function is unused. This warning is
     enabled by -Wall.

Looks like a clang bug here?

(I suspect marking the function with attribute used would
work around this.)
