I'd rather have it inlined, since inlining implies better type checking 
from the compiler, more meaningful warnings, and is in general more 
useful in conjuction with a debugger, for example. :)

Since the problem seems to be the dynamically allocated array, how about 
using __bultin_alloca from gcc to allocate it, like we do on powerpc, 
ia64 and x86_64 ? At least on powerpc-darwin, Riccardo's logs from today 
[1] show no warnings from the compiler wrt to inlining sysdepCallMethod.

If you agree with that, I could write up a patch to switch it over to 
use __builtin_alloca.
