unlikely executed functions (of course profile feedback helps here a lot,
but even without it the heuristics gets it right in many cases), so forcing
-Os for all code, even hot, is not a good idea.
On the other side, compiling everything with -O3 is going to bloat code a
lot, just compile with -O3 the hot compilation units or even better just
