"extern inline" is a particularly unintuitive bit of C syntax where the kernel 
and gcc developers disagreed on it's semantics. It was originally in the 
kernel used to guarantee that a particular routine is inlined. gcc not longer 
guarantees this, resulting in a compiler error if the routine is not inlined 
(eg. when compiling with -O0).

The attached patch changes the arm fpa11 emulation code to use "static inline" 
instead of "extern inline". The comments indicate that the code does not rely 
on inlining for correct behaviour, so this change should be safe.
