Actually, the nice part about "inline_hint" would be that then we could
have some nice config option like

#ifdef CONFIG_FULL_CALL_TRACE
#define inline_hint noinline
#elif defined(CONFIG_TRUST_COMPILER)
#define inline_hint /* */
#else
#define inline_hint __inline
#endif
and now the _only_ thing we need to do is to remove the

#define __inline __force_inline

thing, and just agree that "__inline" is the "native compiler meaning".

We have a few users of "__inline", but not very many. We can leave them
alone, or just convert them to __inline__ or inline.
