This looks sound to me, and from a quick scan of v5.1-rc6 with:

$ git grep -wW inline -- arch/arm64

... I didn't spot any other sites which obviously needed to be made
__always_inline.

I've built and booted this atop of defconfig and my usual suite of debug
options for fuzzing, at EL1 under QEMU/KVM, and at EL2 under QEMU/TCG,
with no issues in either case, so FWIW:

Tested-by: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland at arm.com>

Thanks,
Mark.
