#[inline] can be applied to only functions, but it seems that it can be also applied to statics. What does it mean to apply
#[inline] to statics?
It was used before the
static split when everything was
static and inline by default, but some statics had to be marked as
#[inline(never)] to be non-inlinable and have stable address.
Now all statics have stable address by definition, so the inline attribute is probably not needed anymore.
Thanks, everybody. I updated the pull request.
If it’s still accepted, we should probably fix that. Anyone know if there is an issue or anything?
My pull request to check attribute usage was merged, so
#[inline] on static is now rejected.
