I've already converted test_cls_redirect.c in selftest to have
__noinline variant. And it works fine. There are only 4 helper
functions that can't be converted to a sub-program (pkt_parse_ipv4,
pkt_parse_ipv6, and three buffer manipulation helpers) because they
are accepting a pointer to a stack from a calling function, which
won't work with subprograms. But all the other functions were
trivially converted to __noinline and keep working.
