Subject[PATCH 06/22] kbuild: lto: limit inlining
From
This change limits function inlining across translation unit
boundaries in order to reduce the binary size with LTO.

The -import-instr-limit flag defines a size limit, as the number
of LLVM IR instructions, for importing functions from other TUs.
The default value is 100, and decreasing it to 5 reduces the size
of a stripped arm64 defconfig vmlinux by 11%.
