I think I wasn't clear.  My suggestion didn't mean to affect compile
time, but rather, to offer a reasonably similar behavior across
multiple targets, in regards to inlining or not inlining functions.
Using the same threshold on targets with very different INSN densities
is deemed to get fewer functions inlined on targets with smaller INSN
densities.  I suppose it would be desirable to inline pretty much the
same functions, regardless of the target.
