Hmm. Given that CONFIG_OPTIMIZE_INLINING has also been shown to break
assignment of local 'register' variables on GCC, perhaps we should just
disable that option for arm64 (at least) since we don't have any toolchains
that seem to like it very much! I'd certainly prefer that over playing
whack-a-mole with __always_inline.
