functions make them bad for small-file performance?  AFAIK the
problem with some of the macros in storage/posix is the redundant
xattr calls etc. that some of them make.  Is the idea here that
with inline code (not inline functions) each instance could be
more closely tuned to a particular need and avoid the redundant
