It should be possible to add a -msavres-inline switch, right?  The other
option would be to have a -Ono-s option that turns -Os into -O2
(optimize == 2 for both) but leaves -O1/-O0 alone (by basically just
setting optimize_size to 0).  Of course I consider that more ugly than
a new switch to explicitely disable non-inline saveres code ;)
