Hi,
I've just sent a patch to fix it.

It seems that there is a lot of sysctl related code is built
regardless of the CONFIG_SYSCTL value, but produces a build error only
with my patch because I add a reference to sysctl_vals which is in
kernel/sysctl.c.

And it seems also that the compiler is unable to optimize out the
unused code, which gets somehow in the final binary:

$ grep PROC_SYSCTL .config
# CONFIG_PROC_SYSCTL is not set
$ readelf vmlinux -x .rodata |grep -A 2 platform_lab
0xffffffff81b09180 2e630070 6c617466 6f726d5f 6c616265 .c.platform_labe
0xffffffff81b09190 6c730069 705f7474 6c5f7072 6f706167 ls.ip_ttl_propag
0xffffffff81b091a0 61746500 64656661 756c745f 74746c00 ate.default_ttl.

If the purpose of disabling sysctl is to save space, probably this
code and definitions should all go under an #ifdef
