Yes, this is the same setup as signal.h & libc/gen/sigsetops.c

(btw all of games/ builds fine with HAVE_PCC=yes except dab(6) which is
C++ -- time for a rewrite, Christos? :)

Hm, perhaps useful - though I wonder how necessary such a construct is in
the global namespace? There don't appear to be many such instances in the
tree at least (I found sail, signal.h, gdb6 and binutils), most inlining
seems to be static (as Joerg suggests) but I'm not so keen to modify libc
semantics in that way..

If you do that though, the symbol should likely be __stdc_inline (or
uppercase), as GNU "extern inline" is C99 "inline" ?  (Google finds
nothing with that symbol, so it should be fairly safe..)
