I agree; it's OK for -Os to take more compilation time just as it's OK
for -O2 to take more compilation time.  It's just optimization on a
different axis.

Where are we with Bernd's patch to combine four instructions at this
point?  Does it need review, or are we still not sure it's a good idea?

Thanks,
