Yes, vmlinux got it all.

nm -n vmlinux | grep per_cpu

Which is 19k.

<wonders what happened to the first 8.5k>

If we have any 2-D arrays in there (something dimensioned by NR_CPUS) then
we'll have a big problem.

I guess a medium-term fix would be to add a boot parameter to override
PERCPU_ENOUGH_ROOM - it's hard to justify increasing it permanently just
for the benefit of the tiny minority of kernels which are hand-built with
lots of drivers in vmlinux.

But first let's find out where it all went.
