4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nick Desaulniers <ndesaulniers@google.com>

commit d03db2bc26f0e4a6849ad649a09c9c73fccdc656 upstream.

Functions marked extern inline do not emit an externally visible
function when the gnu89 C standard is used. Some KBUILD Makefiles
overwrite KBUILD_CFLAGS. This is an issue for GCC 5.1+ users as without
an explicit C standard specified, the default is gnu11. Since c99, the
semantics of extern inline have changed such that an externally visible
function is always emitted. This can lead to multiple definition errors
of extern inline functions at link time of compilation units whose build
files have removed an explicit C standard compiler flag for users of GCC
5.1+ or Clang.
