    Hi Alexander.  This is very interesting work.

    Jeroen, I don't think it can be committed straight, there are some
    issues I would like to rework... the __INTEL_COMPILER stuff, for
    example, is a pretty bad hack.   I would prefer creating a
    __INLINES_SUPPORTED__ def in sys/cdefs.h.

    Let me do a first test/commit pass on it to try to reduce the size of 
    the external patch set.  This may break the patch set for a short
    period until Alexander can catch up.
