The native codegen just sends each MachineIL through the codegen passes
one at a time, so it ought to be parallelizable. Of course, once you have
multiple threads in flight, they are competing for the same memory (and,
more importantly with multi-core, the same cache), so I'm not sure how the
trade off would be resolved.
