__maybe_unused is really a bad trick that should be avoided, as it hides 
unused functions.

Why is it a problem to keep prom_getproplen() as 'static inline' ? Most 
small helpers are defined that way. Usually they are in an included 
header file, but what's really the problem with having it here directly ?
