In r286814, the algorithm for calculating inline costs changed. This
caused more inlining to take place which is especially apparent
in optsize and minsize modes.
As the cost calculation removed a skewed behaviour (we were inconsistent
about the cost of calls) it isn't possible to update the thresholds to
get exactly the same behaviour as before. However, this threshold change
accounts for the very common case where an inline candidate has no
calls within it. In this case, r286814 would inline around 5-6 more (IR)
The changes to -Oz have been heavily benchmarked. The "obvious" value
for the inline threshold at -Oz is zero, but due to inaccuracies in the
inline heuristics this can actually cause code size increases due to
not inlining key thunk functions (that then disappear). Experimentally,
5 was the sweet spot for code size over the test-suite.
For -Os, this change removes the outlier results shown up by green dragon
