I wonder if, instead of duplicating the code from tree-inline.c and
then modifying it to suit Java, we wouldn't be better off with an
#if/#else/#endif (hopefully temporary) mess, so as to avoid divergence
between these files...  Then we'd just compile tree-inline.c with a
different macro defined to produce the Java inliner object file.
