Certain tunable parameters are sensitive to the size of compiled methods.
They need revisiting, since machines are larger than when the parameters
were last tuned (Tiger or before).
In particular, certain newer optimizations (bimorphic inlining) create larger
methods which in turn fall foul of the restrictively turned parameters.
Parameters which may need inflation include:
Vladimir reports that changes optimizing JVM98 run into InlineSmallCode limits below 2200.
