yes I did build it - and it did build fine.
That's how I could find out about the size of the .kos

On my machine all comedi .kos before the patch sum up to 9828 bytes.
After applying this patch it comes down to 9812 bytes
If I put the comedi_pci_auto_unconfig into drivers.c and export it, it comes
down to 9752 bytes.

The gcc probably simply does not inline it anymore - inline is just a
suggestion to the compiler.

I did some google searching before submitting it, and it seems that is indeed

Nevertheless I'll send a patch which moves the comedi_pci_auto_unconfig to
