I now do inline functions called exactly once even at -O2.  It is about
1.3rd of the speedup.  That part is target indpendent.
I don't do inlining of small functions as -O3 does.  With -O3 the
comparsion is more dificult, since patch enabled backward inlining thus
larger (and likely faster) programs are produced at -O3 leading to
slowdown of compiler as it has more code to get over.  The slowdown is
proportional to code size growth.
