Inlining decisions that reduces the formulation of callee's stacks frame and including the callee in the caller context increases
The priority function of Inlining decisions can be calculated as follows considering the following.
1. Level nest of the callee.
2. code size of the callee.
3. code size of the largest function in the program.
Prority(c) = (level(c) + 1) * largetsize
The the Higher the priority for inlining decision for the callee with small code size and deepest in the call site of the call graph.
The deeper the level of callee the greater is the priority and smaller the code size the higher is the priority.
The priority function also considers the largest size of the functions in the program. If the size of the function is largest in the
Program the higher is the prority.
Priority(c) = Priority of the callee.
Level(c) = Deepness of the callee.
Size(c) = code size of the callee.
Largetsize = largest size among all the functions in the program.
The above heuristics for inlining should be considered for inlining. If we use similar heuristics in the inlining decisions Let me know.
Thanks & Regards
