The RTL inliner seems to be the cause of several crashes and
miscompilations of Java code. In the past I've noticed a few EH-related
gcj crashes that went away with -fno-inline, but more disturbing is PR6820:
The evaluation order for the arguments is apparantly disregarded when
the call is inlined.
In addition, the inliner has never really worked very well anyway - only
private/final/static methods that preceded the call in a class got
inlined, and methods from other classes never get inlined, afaik.
Why don't we just kill the whole RTL inliner on the mainline?
It rots more and more over time, hey this might provide more
of an impetus for folks to work on tree inlining for the lagging
