It appears that the gcc flag to disable this is -fno-optimize-sibling-calls, but I'm reluctant to resort to that unless the noinline attribute fails to do the job.

Did -fno-optimize-sibling-calls make it through to the compilation commands?  If not, try using EXTRA_CFLAGS instead.  Assuming -fno-optimize-sibling-calls is actually getting used, I'm out of ideas as to how this is failing, and I may need to set up an equivalent environment to dig in further.
