Checking, I find that the mail was "To: address@hidden" and
CCed to me. If it didn't reach the list, then I'm not the only one who
has had mails swallowed silently. (Ah, I'd thought it was just my
filtering of duplicate mails which left me with only the direct copy,
but I see now that a list copy was not received.)

The extremes apparently needed to achieve a genuine and complete -Wall
seem to gradually increase. Thanks for the "heads up".

Oh-oh, I do need to update. My avr-gcc is still 4.2.1, and the manpage
still says:

"Note that if you are not optimizing, no functions can be expanded inline"

but the current


    Generally, functions are not inlined unless optimization is
    specified. For functions declared inline, this attribute inlines the
    function even if no optimization level was specified.
