Presumably the compiler only actually _did_ inline it on ppc64, and
chose not to do so for other architectures this week. And where it
didn't get inlined, it does actually exist and the link will succeed.

Yet another example of a build failure on ppc/ppc64 which actually
demonstrates a generic problem. That's the third one I've seen today...
