YES, THIS! I think there are only very few exceptions where we should
use suggest to the compiler what to do. Most compilers are smart enough
to make the right decisions.

It also prevents weird corner cases, like what happens to alloca() when
a function is inline'd? If you are not sure about when you could use
inline, you should rather not use it ;-)
