To quote gcc info:

     The alternate keywords `__asm__', `__extension__', `__inline__'
     and `__typeof__' continue to work despite `-ansi'.  You would not
     want to use them in an ISO C program, of course, but it is useful
     to put them in header files that might be included in compilations
     done with `-ansi'.

macro tricks with renaming inline are *not* correct, b/c "inline" is a
valid identifier in a c89 program.

Anything under /usr/include should go back to __inline__
