>From the documentation it looks like it isn't even supported for C++,
only C. My guess is that gcc did more inlining when the used functions
were in the same compilation unit but increased inlining was a net loss
for FFmpeg. Compiling at -O2 instead of -O3 might be worth trying. I'd
expect that to remove/lessen the code size increase.
