I think this is great stuff. (Of course, having research something like this
previously, I'm a bit biased.)

It's very nice to have the Bloat-o-meter output for these kernel size shrinking

The patch itself looks very straightforward, and I don't see any problems
in a visual inspection.

You can add a Reviewed-by: Tim Bird <tim.bird@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> to this patch.

I'd like to be able to point people to this on the mailing list. In the future
can you make sure to CC: <linux-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>, so there's a reference
on I can point people to?

Thanks for this great work!
