This one will have an inline-variant, since `f' is simple:

 #lang racket/base
 (provide f)
 (define (f x) x)

The `provide' isn't actually needed, but it may help with testing.

Running `raco make' followed by `raco dec' produces the following
output on my machine:

   (module f ....
         (lambda (arg0-10)
           '#(f #<path:/private/tmp/f.rkt> 3 0 31 16 #f)
           '(flags: preserves-marks single-result)
         (lambda (arg0-11)
           '#(f #<path:/private/tmp/f.rkt> 3 0 31 16 #f)
           '(flags: preserves-marks single-result)

If you want the variants to be different, try

 (define (f x) (f (add1 x)))
