    (trimmed long cc: list to keep it sane, I'll not use
    output this way anymore)

    I'm not sure it decreases performance. From the last iteration of the
    patch, I removed
    the hint to force "not inlining", so that gcc can inline it if it
    thinks it's better.

    Are those so performance sensitive that it makes sense to perform this
    If you think so, what would you suggest? A micro-benchmark or some
    real use case?
