Many thanks for your prompt reply Brandon. I think you are right:

In /usr/include/sys/stat.h:

#if defined __GNUC__ && __GNUC__ >= 2 && defined __USE_EXTERN_INLINES
/* Inlined versions of the real stat and mknod functions.  */

__extern_inline int
__NTH (stat (__const char *__path, struct stat *__statbuf))
  return __xstat (_STAT_VER, __path, __statbuf);

Please find more details in http://pastebin.com/DHium87b
