It is definitely a -O2 vs. -Os issue. With your config:

% nm vmlinux | grep " atomic_" | wc -l

-O2 is fine:
% nm vmlinux | grep " atomic_"
ffffffff852d8300 r atomic_counters_ops
ffffffff83d66bf0 t atomic_counters_read
ffffffff8119cd30 T atomic_dec_and_mutex_lock
ffffffff81172e10 T atomic_notifier_call_chain
ffffffff81172b90 T atomic_notifier_chain_register
ffffffff81172d70 T atomic_notifier_chain_unregister
ffffffff844b0ef0 t atomic_read_file
ffffffff85a0c260 r atomic_ro_fops
ffffffff87616000 d atomic_rw
ffffffff852d8400 r atomic_stats_ops
ffffffff83d66c50 t atomic_stats_read

The easiest fix would be to force always-inline in
include/linux/compiler-gcc.h when CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE is set.

And BTW only x86 and tile define ARCH_SUPPORTS_OPTIMIZED_INLINING, so
the rest of the architectures are not affected anyway.
