This seems to be well-known but is not yet on the regression list.
When building the kernel for alpha using gcc 4.4, many files will provoke these warnings:
arch/alpha/include/asm/io.h: In function '__set_hae':
arch/alpha/include/asm/io.h:41: warning: 'arch_local_irq_save' is static but used in inline function '__set_hae' which is not static
arch/alpha/include/asm/io.h:49: warning: 'arch_local_irq_restore' is static but used in inline function '__set_hae' which is not static
and because the alpha makefiles include -Werror in CFLAGS, this is fatal.

How's that look?

I don't think it's as simple as that - there are a lot of callers to set_hae() that would also need to be static inline.
Here's the discussion thread I found:
Well what does "extern inline logic is crucial for generic kernel build" mean?
The alpha kernel builds and links OK for me with that patch and older gcc.
