So you bloating your Linux binaries/shared-libs for no reason.

__inline__ foo (void)
  puts ("Hello world");

This puts a foo() in every object regardless of you call foo() or
not. Use objdump to check. Adding an "extern" only adds foo() 
if it is called or referenced. gcc on MingW or djgpp has done this 
for a long time. I'd be amassed if this was any different on gcc/Linux.
