I know finding a spare bit in MonoMethod is impossible :-)

About this point I'm not so sure...
The hash would likely need a lock to be used, and even if only
the methods that we try (and fail) to inline are put into it,
the memory and time wasted will probably be relatively high.
And we should also remember to free its entries when we unload

IMHO, it is just easier to force inlining according to wrapper
type: IIRC we already force inlining of certain wrappers, so we
would not change the code logic that much.

And if there are two "kinds" of "managed to managed" wrappers,
one that must be forced inline and one not, we could just
declare those two wrapper types explicitly...
