SubjectRe: [patch 2/3] mutex subsystem: fastpath inlining

what is the effect on text size? Could you post the before- and
after-patch vmlinux 'size kernel/test.o' output in the nondebug case,
with Arjan's latest 'convert a couple of semaphore users to mutexes'
patch applied? [make sure you've got enough of those users compiled in,
so that the inlining cost is truly measured. Perhaps also do
before/after 'size' output of a few affected .o files, without mixing
kernel/mutex.o into it, like vmlinux does.]
