[Mono-dev] llvm and mini

We don't have such a system in Mono. When you run `mono --llvm`, Mono
will try to use LLVM for all methods.

I could see a system like this being implemented based on the
instrumentation functions we have in the JIT. I think the real
challenge would lie in notifying the rest of the runtime/program that
an already-JITed method has been re-JITed, and in a non-racy way.
