If you plan on running this in production, and this increases the size of
the text by 68k, have you measured the I$ pressure that this may induce?
That is, what is the full overhead of having this enabled, as it could
cause more instruction cache misses?

I wonder if there has been measurements of it off. That is, having this
configured in but default off still increases the text size by 68k. That
can't be good on the instruction cache.
