+      // Add any new callsites to the worklist.
+      Calls.append(IFI.InlinedCallSites.begin(), IFI.InlinedCallSites.end());

We check and bail out if Callee->isDeclaration() is true in many places (getInlineCost for example), so this probably doesn't break anything now, but it's preferable to filter out callees without their body when we augment Calls above.

Sorry, that wasn't a reply to your comment.  Mine was a separate unrelated comment on line 857 above.
