For two more datapoints, also from an x86_64 2.6.15-rc7 kernel, here
are the values for my main desktop .config and an allyesconfig .config.
The .deinline kernels have the above patch applied and are also built
with CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE=y.

$ size vmlinux.krw*
text data bss dec hex filename
2338371 462208 479920 3280499 320e73 vmlinux.krw
2309384 468168 479920 3257472 31b480 vmlinux.krw.deinline

.text is only 1.24% smaller

For an allyesconfig, the results are slightly worse:

$ size vmlinux*
text data bss dec hex filename
24076648 7465782 1996904 33539334 1ffc506 vmlinux
23791161 7513590 1996904 33301655 1fc2497 vmlinux.deinline

.text is only 1.19% smaller
