I'm not sure exactly what you mean - it was inline before the move.

But, I honestly didn't think about it too much (although I possibly should
have)... I figured that it was static inline before my patch so I should leave
it as such.

But if everybody thinks it would be better to leave it in dma_64.c and just
expose it for use outside, I'm fine with that.
