Based on my reading of frapy_function, I think it
returns the wrong function in the presence of inlining.
frapy_function uses find_pc_function to find the
function symbol.  However, find_pc_function calls
find_pc_sect_function, which ends with:

  return block_linkage_function (b);

That is, it skips inlined functions and returns
the enclosing non-inlined function.

That seems wrong to me.

Closing this one as a dup, as the other bug is where the
action is happening.
