[PATCH] Better account for cost of soft fp in Inliner

Hi Cameron, 

In your patch you are checking for the legality of the instruction. However,  I think that what you are trying to do is to estimate the size of the generated instruction. At the moment we don’t have the infrastructure for estimating the size of instructions, but this should not be too difficult to add.

The current design decision is that early passes, such as the inliner, should not use TTI.  Only the later “lowering” passes should be able to use TTI.
