For debug info, it seems you are already handling this in
delegitimize_address target hook, I'd suggest just building some very large
shared library at -O2 -g -fpic on i?86 and either look at the
sizes of .debug_info/.debug_loc sections with/without the patch,
or use the locstat utility from elfutils (talk to Petr Machata if needed).
