Btw, did you check with just "-fno-inline-functions-called-once"?

The -fearly-inlining decisions _should_ be mostly right. If gcc sees early
that a function is so small (even without any constant propagation etc)
that it can be inlined, it's probably right.

The inline-functions-called-once thing is what causes even big functions
to be inlined, and that's where you find the big downsides too (eg the
stack usage).
