"inline" is something new called a "function specifier" rather than a
storage class specifier.  Use of storage class specifiers other than at
the start of a declaration is obsolescent but still allowed in C99.  
Making the warning code aware of this difference is on the TODO list in my
C parser cleanup patch.
