      Description

      To optimize some methods as they are inlined it may be helpful to know 1) if the method is being inlined, and 2) which parameters (if any) are constant.

      I have a patch to add these which is well contained, so I thought it would be worth committing.

      The original target for this was arraycopy, but in order to get better array copy we also need to add new instructions and I currently do not have the time to do the required analysis/implementation.
