While this isn't definitive by any means, I did get some interesting
results. Pulling the check out of alloc_pages() had no effect at *all*
on text size because I'm trying with CONFIG_NUMA=n.

$ size i386-T41-laptop.{0,1}/vmlinux
text data bss dec hex filename
4348625 286560 860160 5495345 53da31 i386-T41-laptop.0/vmlinux
4348625 286560 860160 5495345 53da31 i386-T41-laptop.1/vmlinux
We get a slightly different when pulling the check out of
alloc_pages_node():

$ size i386-T41-laptop.{1,2}/vmlinux
text data bss dec hex filename
4348625 286560 860160 5495345 53da31 i386-T41-laptop.1/vmlinux
4348601 286560 860160 5495321 53da19 i386-T41-laptop.2/vmlinux

I'm going to retry this with a NUMA config.
