Is DMD still not inlining "inline asm"?

Yes, this is still the case. A particularity of DMD inliner is
that it does its job in the front-end, so inlining asm is totally
impossible. Then, even if inlining was done in the backend
inlining of asm would not be guaranteed because the byte code is
generated at a very late stag, which causes problem with the
registry allocator, the preservation of the stack, etc.
For example ldc2 does not inline a trival asm func
As for now, I know no compiler that can do that.
