I waited over 10 minutes for the full vmlinux objdumps to finish. sorry lost
patience. If someone has a fast disassembler we can try it. I'll leave
them running over night, maybe there are exact numbers tomorrow.

But from a quick check (find -name '*.o' | xargs nm | grep memcpy) there are
very little files which call it with the patch, so there's some
evidence that there isn't a dramatic increase.
