After cloning the source, I found the issue using code-review, 
the regression was introduced in:

Since I'm not able to build LDC at the moment, I downloaded a 
binary ldc-dist before this patch was introduced and indeed it is 
able to compile my blockaddress example, but instead there's a 
linking error, the inline function is missing, it's not as simple 
as reverting this patch.

Looking at the "-output-ll" I see that the inlineIR function is 
"declared" but not defined.
