Non-inlining in the loop module doesn't seem like a big trouble. OTOH,
other callers may be more sensitive and would need to rely on inlining.
I can't currently think of a nice way to have both the exported and the
exlicitly inlined variant at once. It seems it's either API or perf
craft in the end but both are uncertain, so I guess the current approach
is fine in the end.

Isn't there a window without the reference between loop_queue_rq and
loop_queue_work? I don't know, you seem to know better, so I'd suggest
dropping a comment line into the code explaining this.
