"disassemble" shows code, but not with /m

Did anyone bump into something like below with GDB 7.7?
SUBRP is an inline function defined on the header file lisp.h in
Emacs:

  INLINE bool
  SUBRP (Lisp_Object a)
  {
    return PSEUDOVECTORP (a, PVEC_SUBR);
  }


Trying to disassemble it, I get these results:

  (gdb) disassemble 0x10f3110,+30
  Dump of assembler code from 0x10f3110 to 0x10f312e:

  End of assembler dump.
  (gdb) disassemble 0x10f3110

  End of assembler dump.
  (gdb) disassemble 'lisp.h'::SUBRP
  Dump of assembler code for function SUBRP:

     0x010f3129 <+25>:    leave
     0x010f312a <+26>:    ret
  End of assembler dump.

But:

  (gdb) disassemble /m 0x10f3110
  Dump of assembler code for function SUBRP:
  End of assembler dump.
  (gdb) disassemble /m 0x10f3110,+30
  Dump of assembler code from 0x10f3110 to 0x10f312e:
  End of assembler dump.
  (gdb) disassemble /m 'lisp.h'::SUBRP
  Dump of assembler code for function SUBRP:
  End of assembler dump.
  (gdb)

IOW, the /m switch somehow inhibits the disassembly.  FWIW, using x/i
for the respective addresses shows the instructions just fine.

Is this a bug?
