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
 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
