Ok, I'm happy with this. I'll even apply it if you make a version relative
to my -BK tree ;).

Btw, there must be something wrong in your size comparison for x86:

i386 = 524115 bytes
text data bss dec hex filename
5695619 870906 328112 6894637 69342d vmlinux-after
6221254 870634 326864 7418752 713380 vmlinux-before

The "bss" number shouldn't change as far as I can tell, and indeed, on all
the other architectures you cite, it doesn't change. So I think your
before/after numbers on x86 are something else.
