Hi Alan,

Not sure whether you mean the source code or the object code. I build
kernel with debug symbols so the sizes are bit higher.

fixed table: -rw-r--r-- 1 arend arend 1859 2011-05-24 11:53 crc8.o
custom table: -rw-r--r-- 1 arend arend 2215 2011-05-24 11:58 crc8.o

The size increase is not that big.
