What is the error the compiler reports? Can it take the address of other
inline functions? For example, can it compile:

    inline int foo(void) { return 5; }
    extern int bar(int (*cb)(void));
    int call(void) { return bar(foo); }

Just wondering if that is the root of the problem, or if maybe there is
something else subtle going on. Also, does __CRT_INLINE just turn into
"inline", or is there perhaps some other pre-processor magic going on?
