I seriously doubt it, but it is hard to say without a testcase.  It
would be reasonable to submit a bugzilla bug report if you find a

__attribute__ ((noinline)) will prevent it from being inlined
everywhere.  Since I don't know why inlining and sibcalls aren't working
together, I can't suggest a work around for this specific problem.

I don't recall that discussion, so I can't comment on it.  It would
probably be reasonable to have something like -Wsibcall patterned after
the existing -Winline option.  I don't know of anyone planning to do
anything like that though.
