This change set implements target independent code size heuristics to control Loop Idiom Recognition (LIR) when compiling with -Os or -Oz.

The heuristics allow LIR for the loop's stores if 
- the loop contains no non-idiom instructions which could prevent the loop's collapse after idiom recognition,
- the number of candidate idioms in the loop do not exceed a value which is a function of the number of loops stores and which takes chained loop stores into account.

The reasoning is that the code resulting from idiom recognition of loops  which satisfy the above criterion has a good chance of comparing reasonably well in terms of code size with the original loop code, i.e. doing LIR for such loops is less likely to result in unreasonable code bloat.
