You are right when it comes to LoC stats, but bloat-o-meter says it's
quite useful when it comes to actual code size.

This is what we're adding:

$ ./scripts/bloat-o-meter drivers/regulator/helpers.o.old
drivers/regulator/helpers.o
add/remove: 3/0 grow/shrink: 0/0 up/down: 72/0 (72)
Function old new delta
regulator_bulk_set_supply_names - 32 +32
__kstrtab_regulator_bulk_set_supply_names - 32 +32
__ksymtab_regulator_bulk_set_supply_names - 8 +8
Total: Before=4438, After=4510, chg +1.62%

And this is what we're removing just from one driver:

$ ./scripts/bloat-o-meter ./drivers/ata/ahci_tegra.o.old
./drivers/ata/ahci_tegra.o
add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-52 (-52)
Function old new delta
tegra_ahci_probe 1688 1636 -52
Total: Before=3474, After=3422, chg -1.50%

This looks like a good candidate for the next step, but I'd say this
change is still worth applying.
