It's not different at all. The user may want to compile parts of the
program with -ffast-math, and parts without it. Same thing applies to
vectorization, parallelization, or any aggressive optimizations that
could result in small imprecisions (e.g. reassociation). When LTO is
introduced, the inlining code will be faced with these decisions.
