I don't see changing inline sizes for 292 methods. Do you not need it anymore? Also question, how many call sites mh 
adapter has? I thought adapter has only one call site. Then why generate MDO only to propagate counter for one call site?

Maybe we should be looking back through method handle calls to find the frequency of the base call site and feeding that into the frequent call site logic.
