You mean not having a size restriction for inlining methods or Mono.Simd?
Well, I pretty much hate the idea of having such special casing in the jit.
It won't make stuff work better
and will increase the amount of voodoo inside the JIT, which is bad.

And, besides that, inlining the code in Mono.Simd won't cut unless the JIT
implements a value-scalar
replacement optimization to decompose vtype members into regular scalar ops.

What would be useful would be JIT hinting to force inlining. This would be
more broad and useful. This
has been discussed before and had a general agreement that would be useful.

Feel free to implement both optimizations, I'll gladly review them.
