Forgot to respond to this. The compiler will likely choose to optimize out
calls to an empty function like this. Checking, this is indeed what it does in
this case on my machine, with or without inline.
By the way, when building without CONFIG_THP_SWAP, we get
linux/mm/swapfile.c:933:13: warning: â__swap_free_clusterâ defined but not used [-Wunused-function]
static void __swap_free_cluster(struct swap_info_struct *si, unsigned long idx)
