The total and the active code size in the main VM loop will
probably increase, i.e. the I-cache utilization will increase.
It's unclear whether this'll make much of a difference (the
bigger I-cache hogs are usually found elsewhere, e.g. libc).
[Popular L1 I-cache sizes: PIII/P4: 16K, K8/C2D: 64K, ARM/MIPS: 4K-32K.]
