If they are intended to be always inlined, they should be declared
with the always_inline attribute.  -Os doesn't turn off inlining in
general, but since inlining usually does increase code size you need
to tell the compiler.  (E.g. sh3 kernel cache code does this b/c cache
must be accessed by code in uncached P2, so macro-like inline
functions must be inlined, or they will be called via their normal
addresses in the cached space.)
