With my patch, I produce abstract instance only when inlining actually
happens in given compilation unit.  So you suggest that with
-felliminate-dwarf2-dups we should separate all DECL_INLINE functions?

How this is different with -O3?  Then we can inline even functions not
declared inline (this actually happens even for functions called once at
-O2) so perhaps we need abstract instances for all functions just for
sure as we don't know what happens in the other unit?

OK, and contrete instance does not contain DW_AT_INLINE, so it is not
dependent on particular inlining decisions, right?
