It's rs6000_binds_local_p.  Since AIX forces flag_pic true, it is
effectively prevented from auto-inlining any non-static function.

I believe David said that AIX normally binds locally in shared
libraries, but there is a linker switch to change that default.
He also said that the IBM compiler doesn't change code generation
wrt that flag; it's up to David to decide what's best here for gcc.
