heavens.  Why was this made inline?  And extern inline?

It's too big for inlining (and is super-slow anyway) and will cause all
sorts of unpleasant header file dependencies for all architectures.  bio.h
now needs to see the implementation of everyone's flush_dcache_page(), for
example.


Something like this?
