The current headers which have "inline" declarations for the functions
without a function definition make no sense according to either C99 or
older gcc usage. If a function is inline then a definition must be in
the same translation unit. A declaration without a function body is
legal but rather pointless when it must be followed by the definition
anyway. I suppose it could have use cases like verifying that the
signatures of differently optimized local inline versions in
different .c files match, but that's not how the FFmpeg functions are
