Hello CL pros,

I am trying to figure out the meaning of the inline declaration when the so
qualified function happens to be a generic function. As in:

(declaim (inline foo))
(defgeneric foo (a b))

What can be expected of a compiler when it then faces a call to foo while
the above is in effect?

Is this an obvious no-op or did some find something useful to do in such a

Thanks for your help,
