[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 003/122] staging, rtl8192e, LLVMLinux: Change extern inline to static inline

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Wed Jun 17 2015 - 18:29:57 EST

3.13.11-ckt22 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Behan Webster <behanw@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6d91857d4826b382b3fd4fad95f52713be646f96 upstream.

With compilers which follow the C99 standard (like modern versions of gcc and
clang), "extern inline" does the opposite thing from older versions of gcc
(emits code for an externally linkable version of the inline function).

"static inline" does the intended behavior in all cases instead.
