Two identical kernel configs, one with one without CONFIG_RESOURCES_64BIT:

text data bss dec hex filename
3334684 152208 138624 3625516 37522c vmlinux
3340352 152464 138752 3631568 3769d0 vmlinux

So that's 5668, 256 bytes data and 128 bytes of bss for a total of 6052
bytes. Not a whole lot but I still fear some users on the most
claustrophobic systems will mind.
