Can't you do better than that ;)

All four of these functions are inlined.  Taking their address in this
fashion will force the compiler to generate out-of-line copies.

If we do it the uglier-and-maybe-a-bit-slower way:

Then we get:

shakeel+the-above: 106805   35657    1024  143486   2307e mm/memcontrol.o

Which do we prefer?  The 100-byte patch or the 406-byte patch?
