The toolchain benchmark suite derived from Google already includes the
FDO mode, and I would suggest to enable it for comparisons.

Android build system has (incomplete) FDO integration since Android
2.2[*].  In my experience, it sometimes helps the performance for
special cases slightly.


[*] The build system would perform "build-run-build" scheme with the
help of ADB, which deploys the profiler on target.
