In the absence of a global optimizer, there has to be an inline
definition available in the translation unit in order for inlining to
be done. So only inline functions defined as such in header files are
reasonable candidates.

We might be able to hack together some kind of global optimizer (maybe
with llvm?) but it's not entirely trivial.
