Looks ok.

In method_back_branch_event() in case the OSR compilation level is CompLevel_limited_profile we change it to CompLevel_full_profile but we don't do the same in call_event() and loop_event() to determine whether the existing OSR methods are current. The solution would be to move this level fixup in form of disabling the tier 3 delay feedback in common() for OSRs.
