If you drop this part, my motivation for this patch is lost.

My motivation is to allow all architectures to enable
CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING.
(Currently, only x86 can enable it, but I see nothing arch-dependent
in this feature.)


When I tested it in 0-day bot, it reported
section mismatches from prom_getprop() and prom_getproplen().

So, I want to fix the section mismatches without
relying on 'inline'.


My suggestion is this:

static int __init __maybe_unused prom_getproplen(phandle node,
const char *pname)
{
return call_prom("getproplen", 2, 1, node, ADDR(pname));
}


It is true you can use the side-effect of 'inline'
to hide the unused function warnings, but I prefer
as less inline markers as possible in *.c files.

I prefer 'static __init' to 'static inline',
but I can drop this if you are uncomfortable with it.

My work will not be blocked by this.

As I said above, I believe 'static inline' is mostly useful in headers,
but this is up to you.


BTW, I have v2 in hand already.
Do you need it if it is convenient for you?

I added __init to enter_prom() as well,
but you may not be comfortable with
replacing inline with __init.
