Although I think this is functionally fine, I think it's unusual to see
large "static inline" functions like this in shared header files. One
alternative approach would be to follow the example of
kernel/locking/qspinlock_paravirt.h, where the header is guarded in such a
way that is only ever included by kernel/locking/qspinlock.c and therefore
doesn't need the "inline" at all. That separation really helps, I think.
