I already addressed the shortcomings on my original patch in a separate
message.

I just wanted to add one clarification however... When measuring sizes
of compiled object files, the only numbers that _I_ am actually interested
in are the ones reported by either the `size' command or the `readelf'
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'
decrease.
