I tried a couple things (see below), but don't see a nice simple way
forward. One option I didn't investigate is copying what SMP does.

I'm inclined to recommend v1 of the patch.

Switching to extern inline on x86 leads to:

/usr/src/linux-current/wireless-testing/include/linux/spinlock_api_up.h:
In function '_spin_lock_irq':
/usr/src/linux-current/wireless-testing/include/linux/spinlock_api_up.h:73:
warning: 'raw_local_irq_disable' is static but used in inline function
'_spin_lock_irq' which is not static
...
/usr/src/linux-current/wireless-testing/include/linux/spinlock_api_up.h:139:
warning: 'current_thread_info' is static but used in inline function
'_write_unlock_irqrestore' which is not static

Looks like one for each of the functions. Seems to link OK.

-> cascade the extern inline into raw versions of functions? on all archs?

Plain old inline (and __attribute__((gnu_inline)) ) on x86 leads to:

LD init/mounts.o
init/do_mounts_rd.o: In function `_write_unlock_irqrestore':
do_mounts_rd.c:(.text+0x0): multiple definition of
`_write_unlock_irqrestore'
init/do_mounts.o:do_mounts.c:(.text+0x1b5): first defined here
...
init/do_mounts_initrd.o: In function `_spin_lock':
do_mounts_initrd.c:(.text+0x298): multiple definition of `_spin_lock'
init/do_mounts.o:do_mounts.c:(.text+0x44d): first defined here
make[2]: *** [init/mounts.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [init] Error 2
make: *** [sub-make] Error 2

-> clever linker solution?

The statistics (2.6.31-rc4ish) show a strong preference for static inline:

$ find include -name "*.h" | xargs grep "static inline" | wc -l
6461

$ find include -name "*.h" | xargs grep "extern inline" | wc -l
2

$ find arch -name "*.h" | xargs grep "extern inline" | wc -l
125

$ find arch -name "*.h" | xargs grep "static inline" | wc -l
7058

$ find arch -name "*.h" | xargs grep "extern inline" | sed
"s?^\(.*\):.*\$?\1?" | sort | uniq
