Hm, the failed to inline functions are actually in the headers, but not
marked inline. So I still think -finline-functions does not affect
libstdc++ declarations.

But, I doubt so much changed between 3.3 and 3.4 in this area. So there
must be something seriously wrong with 3.4s loop/gcse/cse passes that they
leave all this crap in, compared to 3.3. Ugh. I'll try to dig into it -
but 223 lines assembly for 3.3 compared to 531 for 3.4 is just bad.

Any hints? Anybody wants another (huge) POOMA testcase? ;)
