I made another exmeriment, compiling current mainine with 3.4, 4.0 and
4.0 patched
and compare all the sizes from the cgraph dump file.  The result
(sorted after 3.4 size)
can be viewed at
The red line is the size estimate of 3.4, the green dots are the size
estimates of 4.0
and the blue dots are the new size estimate with the patch.  The new one is less
noisy and more close to the 3.4 behavior.  Also the overall size
estimate for mostly
C sources is slightly below that of 3.4.
