With TI we have enough information to generate inline code for object creation not just at [] and {} sites, but also calls to Array etc. and creation of scripted 'new' objects.  With recent refactorings these all incur some new overhead when happening in the VM (need to look up the type to use in a hashtable, need to record the type when constructing 'this') so it makes more sense to do this now.

This is somewhat different from bug 638015, which only handles scripted 'new' but can generate code for handling polymorphic constructors.  The main (well, only) place I've seen polymorphic constructors is the Prototype.js Class.create function seen in v8-raytrace; this bug won't handle that pattern, but with building blocks for the monomorphic case we should be able to inline the v8-raytrace object construction by doing some specialization on that pattern (bug 638794).

And followup because I forgot to record dependencies and trigger recompilation on newScript changes.

Microbenchmarks, with artificially introduced GCs because otherwise the page fault overhead drowns out the different perf when constructing objects.

function foo() {
  for (var i = 0; i < 100000; i++)
for (var i = 0; i < 40; i++) {
  if (typeof gc != "undefined")

Different code for <blank>:

var b = {a:0, b:1, c:2, d:3};
var b = [0,1,2,3];
var b = Array(0,1,2,3);
var b = Array(4);
var b = new Bar(0,1,2,3);

             {}   []   Array(...)  Array(4)  new Bar
-m -n (new)  220  218  220         202       242
-m -n (old)  269  282  551         358       300
-j           261  255  266         252       403
-m           308  321  400         342       385
jsc          302  237  302         319       348
d8           155  34   62          76        52

We won't come even remotely close to matching V8 here until we have a generational GC.
