Description

"ruby -e 'p GC.stat(:total_allocated_objects)'" goes from
70199 to 69540 allocated objects when loading RubyGems from
a clean install.

The increased VM size slows down the whileloop2 and vm2_dstr
case slightly, but string interpolation often consists of
non-strings.  The addition of inline cache helps integer cases
slightly, and the intended Symbol optimization gives a major
improvement.

Digits (0-9), Integers, and perhaps true/false/nil may be
optimized in the future.
