    I can't see it helping *that* much, for me I have:

    charon:~/wk/linux% size 2.4.x-cw/vmlinux bk-2.5.x/vmlinux
    text data bss dec hex filename
    2003887 120260 191657 2315804 23561c 2.4.x-cw/vmlinux
    2411323 267551 181004 2859878 2ba366 bk-2.5.x/vmlinux

    gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian prerelease)

    this is for functionally (in terms of .config) equivalent kernels.
