Bug 1296642 - Avoid compiling {Read,Write}Sentinel calls in non-sentinel checking builds. r=billm, a=ritu Pickle::{Read,Write}Sentinel were introduced as a way of catching problems with corrupted IPDL messages at the point of message serialization, rather than the point of use of the bad data. The checking itself is only done on debug or non-release builds, but the calls to the functions are compiled in regardless of whether checking is done. While LTO could plausibly optimize away all the calls, we don't have LTO on all of our platforms, particularly mobile. Therefore, we should move the non-checking versions of the calls inline, so the compiler can eliminate those calls entirely, even in non-LTO builds.
