It is "better". This means that IF it can be implemented with a simple
variable, then a simple define

#define resched_needed() need_resched

will do. However if the implementation becomes more complicated, then
it becomes easier to implement it as an inline function.

Now the patch is probably "wrong" too, because the above define is
not in there anywhere...
