I generally just replaced "FORCE_INLINE" by "static inline". At least I thought so.
I rechecked and realised, I missed at least two of them (why did I not just use "search+replace"?).
So I think it's maybe safer and easier to eventually just use "FORCE_INLINE"
with the definition you suggested. Will try that.

I don't really know what to do about this. I think the matter is the size of the E-Mail.
Are there filters or something like that? Since in linux-kernel the patch seems to get delivered.
I could otherwise CC you if you wish.

Thanks,
