Oh, I see.  The inlining causes an "almost" static definition for the
locals in the functions.  As someone else said, the reuse of the stack
is disabled. 

Wow, that's a good reason to avoid use of local variables in inlined
functions.  If it's possible.  :(  Yuck!

Hi, Stu

You missed the "..._then_ function C _and then_ function D..." part :)

So my example would look more like:

static int functionB(void) {
        uint8_t localB[32];
static int functionC(void) {
        uint8_t localC[32];
static int functionD(void) {
        uint8_t localD[32];
int functionA( int a ) {

When gcc inlines all the functions into functionA it allocates 96 bytes
of stack, because it isn't capable of reusing the stack space anymore.
