SubjectRe: [patch 00/2] improve .text size on gcc 4.0 and newer compilers
From
Date
Some data from an x86-64 allyesconfig build.

Below is a *rough* estimate of savings that could be achieved by
uninlining specific functions. The estimate is rough in the sense that it assumes
that no "trick" allows the uninlined version to be significantly smaller
than the inlined version, which for certain functions is not a valid
assumption (kmalloc comes to mind as an obvious one).

The saving is estimated at (count-1) * (size-6), eg the estimate for a
function call is 6 bytes as well and the estimate for the size something
takes as inlined is the same as the uninline size.


These are the top items only; a more complete list can be gotten
from http://www.fenrus.org/savings
