Yep, it is not prettiest. The problem is that the concept that callee can change semantics
when no explicit attribute is present is sloppy. I am not sure how many programs rely on it
(it is kind of surprising to see functions not being inlined into your target attribute annotated
function I guess).
Note that we check for original file in inliner already - this can be done by comparing lto_file_data
of corresponding cgraph nodes.
