I already addressed the shortcomings on my original patch in a separate
I just wanted to add one clarification however... When measuring sizes
of compiled object files, the only numbers that _I_ am actually interested

utility. I'm am _not_ aiming to reduce the (disk file) sizes of the
relevant object files. And in fact, due to lengthening of some symbols,
the disk file sizes _may_ increase, even as the sizes reported by `size'
