I noticed a similar problem with ORC data. As it turns out, size's
"text" calculation also includes read-only sections. That includes
.rodata and anything else not writable.

Maybe we need a more sensible "size" script for the kernel. It would be
trivial to implement based on the output of "readelf -S vmlinux".
