Well, in theory, it is all lazyness on the side of gcc - of course one can in
theory track ISA attributes at instruction granuality and make all those
inlines safe. But of course this is becuase optimize/target attributes are
hacks by themselves.
The proposed patch is consistent with hacks we already have in ipa-inline
/* When user added an attribute to the callee honor it. */
else if (lookup_attribute ("optimize", DECL_ATTRIBUTES (callee->decl))
&& opts_for_fn (caller->decl) != opts_for_fn (callee->decl))
It may not be that easy to fix these at user side - for example current logic
will block you from using xmmintrin.h functions from any function with custom
target attribute specifying ISA flags, which I think was one of original
