Besides patch 1 and 2 of this series, I also see:
Documentation/trace/tracepoint-analysis.rst
318: : extern __inline void
__attribute__((__gnu_inline__, __always_inline__, _

scripts/kernel-doc
1574: $prototype =~ s/^__inline +//;

In my effort to make the kernel slightly more compiler-portable, I
have not yet found anyone building with ICC. I would love to be
proven wrong. Let me go ask some of my Intel friends.

See:
include/acpi/platform/acenv.h
146 #elif defined(__INTEL_COMPILER)
147 #include <acpi/platform/acintel.h>

> small change of semantics (lack of __gnu_inline) changes anything.

include/acpi/platform/acintel.h
25:#define ACPI_INLINE __inline
include/acpi/platform/acgcc.h
29:#define ACPI_INLINE __inline__

lol wut

I mean, you just would have to change that one line in
include/acpi/platform/acintel.h, right? I'd sign off on this patch
with such a patch added to the series.
