Hi Dan,

It is much harder for compiler to decide that function can be inlined
once it is non-static. Of course, we can simply move this function to a
header file, and declare it inline to begin with.

But, still __init_single_page() is so performance sensitive, that I'd
like to reduce number of callers to this function, and keep it in .c file.

Thank you,
