AREF is inlined in many cases, including multidimensional access, but the
level of inlining may vary. If you have a look at src/cmppolicy.lsp you will

(define-policy inline-accessors :off debug 2 :off space 3
  "Inline access to object slots, including conses and arrays")

(define-policy open-code-aref/aset :alias inline-accessors
  "Inline access to arrays")

This means AREF is always open-coded unless DEBUG >= 2. But open-coding only
means that AREF is translated into ROW-MAJOR-AREF and this one is only
inlined when safety settings are low and the type of the array is known in
