Wouldn't this cause functions with MSVC that are marked
LLVM_ATTRIBUTE_ALWAYS_INLINE but not 'inline' to not be inlined? I
suppose a possible way is to make a #define
LLVM_ATTRIBUTE_INLINE_ALWAYS_INLINE that combines the two when not
compiling with MSVC, and then change all the requisite function
signatures to use this new macro instead. Uncertain of the value of
that, however.
