And that's exactly what defining __NO_INLINE__ does. Granted, defining
__NO_INLINE__ in the scope of string.h will also add a "#define

does not imply a performance hit due to functions not being inlined
because it's just the "strncasecmp" wrapper around "_strnicmp" that's
being inlined, not "_strnicmp" itself.

What I don't understand is why the header doesn't use "static inline"
instead of "extern inline".  The former would seem to be better in
every way for this particular use case.

See also <http://www.greenend.org.uk/rjk/tech/inline.html>, section
"GNU C inline rules".

I've suggested this at [1] now to see if such a patch is likely to be accepted.
