Beware this one. The CFI code is not realistically ever used with
everything set to y in real life scenarios. In fact, when only the
needed buswidth and interleave option are selected then this particular
inlined function gets reduced to a simple constant, such as 0x00700070
for example.

However if gcc wasn't forced to always inline, then in the allyesconfig
this function would benefit from being uninlined automatically.
