Thank you.
Yes, static inline something should go into .h files. But
e.g. Redhat and RH based systems badly chose to have this (at
least with their kernel 2.4.22*) in sched.c (not .h), and not

The "generic solution" is to get it included in the mainstream
kernel, then its the distributors problem, not ours.

Well, actually it is never our problem, since we basically only
support mainstream kernels.
Ok, and sponsor kernels :)

But notone runs kernel.org kernels, so we obviously had to support
the RH variants, too.

Noone ever complained about the Montavista kernel yet...
