Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-11-09 09:54:20 UTC
The ia32el srpms have this fixed already (by removing inline keyword where
it should not be used as the function really is not inlinable).
See ia32el-gcc34.patch patch.

Comment 3 Yoav Zach 2004-11-09 11:31:52 UTC
we considered this solution and prefer to remove the -Winline switch. 
can you please reconsider it ?

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2004-11-09 12:59:17 UTC
Curious, why you think removing -Winline is better?
IMHO it is quite useful warning, if you have code that you intend to be inlined,
it helps you ensure it really is inlined.
What purpose is for the inline keyword on functions that really can't be inlined
(they don't have function bodies defined in the header that has the inline
keywords nor anything else that is included in the .c files that are using
these routines)?

Comment 5 Yoav Zach 2004-11-09 13:36:51 UTC
the argument was that it depends on the compiler, whether a function 
can be inlined or not. and we don't want to get into a situation 
where we need to change the sources for each new version of gcc (or 
intel compiler when we'll start using it).

Comment 6 Jakub Jelinek 2004-11-16 12:52:35 UTC
It seems the noaltroot patch was already removing -Winline.
Anyway, I have added the patch as is and removed from noaltroot the same hunks
(because on RHEL3 noaltroot patch is not applied).

Intel, closing this out, as it hasn't come up in recent discussions.  Please
reopen if the problem is still present.
