Agreed, as OPTIMIZE_INLINING is to make functions marked inline not to
be inlined. And I just noticed (doing a git grep), that that config is
now only available in arch/x86. Maybe it always was, but sparc
undefines it for vclock_gettime.c.

$ git grep OPTIMIZE_INLIN
arch/sparc/vdso/vdso32/vclock_gettime.c:#undef  CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING
arch/x86/Kconfig.debug:config OPTIMIZE_INLINING
arch/x86/configs/i386_defconfig:CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING=y
arch/x86/configs/x86_64_defconfig:CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING=y
arch/x86/entry/vdso/vdso32/vclock_gettime.c:#undef CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING
include/linux/compiler-gcc.h:    !defined(CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING) || (__GNUC__ < 4)
kernel/configs/tiny.config:CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING=y
