I've run it on Gerald's testcase (tramp3d for some reason no longer
compiles for me on current mainline) with timmer added and I get 0%,
0.02 seconds on packing.
Also I've run bootstrap time and measured no difference (in fact new
time was 10 seconds lower, but I doubt my patch is making compilation
any faster).
Do you know of testcases where the packing misbehave?  It ought to be
easy to trim it down.
I would rather avoid GIGO principe on stuff inliner uses for inlining
decision - if we fork the estimate, we will risk of having it very wrong
without really noticing the problem as inliner problems manifest
themselves only in incredibly complex testcases.

Does the attached patch look like good idea so we keep eye on varpacking
