Like... suppose you are running an application and it deems it needs to 
recompile some functions, would it potentially offload that recompiling work to 
the other processor while running the application normally [suppose it's a 
single-threaded app].

Depends on the OS, I think; Recompilation is done in a background thread, so 
chances are good that unneeded CPU resources are being used...

Recompilation does not interfere with 'normal' operation mode of the 
application, other than one additional thread (actually it's three threads) have 
to be run..
