No.

If CONFIG_NO_AUTO_INLINE is turned off for compile-testing,
people will not even notice a breakage,
then the code will get broken here and there.

You will not be able to enable it
when you really want to use it.





In this case, the reason is obvious.

If you expect the compiler to optimize the code out,
you must use 'static inline' instead of 'static'.


static int is_atomic_response(struct mlx5_ib_qp *qp, uint16_t idx)
{
/* TBD: waiting decision
*/
return 0;
}
