How do you expect one to find excessively large inlines,
if not on allyesconfig build?

Only by using allyesconfig, I can measure how many calls
are there in the kernel. (grepping source is utterly unreliable
due to nested inlines and macros).

For the record: I am not using the _full_ allyesconfig,
I do disable some debugging options which clearly aren't
ever enabled on production systems. E.g. in my config:

# CONFIG_DEBUG_KMEMLEAK_TEST is not set
# CONFIG_KASAN is not set

etc.

Grepping is far from reliable. The above missed more than half
of all calls. I disassembed vmlinux after deinlining, there are
nearly 500 calls of net_generic().

Going to send the patch in a minute.
