Thanks. However, it really should use the "noinline" define that we have
for this, and that doesn't upset older versions of gcc that don't
understand the "noinline" attribute.

Also, declaration and definition should match, even if gcc doesn't seem to
catch that.

So here's the version I committed. It should be obviously ok, but it's
still a good idea to verify..
