Re: [PATCH] PR 17115: Do not warn for noinline functions

I was mimicing the way we were handling attribute always_inline a few lines
above. Actually, it looks weird to me that noinline and always_inline are
handled in such a different way (one totally inside the frontends, one in the
middle end?). Or maybe I am still missing something...
Is there a good reason to keep attribute noinline within the frontends?

I see. I do not have time to do this at this point, though, my backlog is long
enough. If you feel the patch is incorrect, I will add this suggestion to
Bugzilla, and someone can revisit this later. Notice this is also a regression
on 3.3 and 3.4, so maybe my patch makes sense at least there.
