Right, so I just gave it a try for x86 with gcc 8.0.1 (which seem to
introduce a lot of LTO-related enhancements) and I get the following:

Without patch
text data bss dec hex filename
17474129 4980348 995532 23450009 165d199 vmlinux

With patch
text data bss dec hex filename
17474049 4980348 995532 23449929 165d149 vmlinux

So it is still true that this patch actually changes the code size, most
likely because of new function calls. But maybe we don't care if the
impact on performance isn't noticeable ... As Patrick said, a hackbench
run should be more interesting here. I'll give a try later today.
