CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING: Allow gcc to uninline functions marked 'inline'

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING:

Help text

This option determines if the kernel forces gcc to inline the functions developers have marked 'inline'. Doing so takes away freedom from gcc to do what it thinks is best, which is desirable for the gcc 3.x series of compilers. The gcc 4.x series have a rewritten inlining algorithm and enabling this option will generate a smaller kernel there. Hopefully this algorithm is so good that allowing gcc 4.x and above to make the decision will become the default in the future. Until then this option is there to test gcc for this.

If unsure, say N.
