Yes - I think this is a little overboard, but must be balanced
by the size of the code.

If we are talking about ~16kb of .text page, then really this is
insignificant.  No OS has <64kb granularity, and soon most will
be much higher.

You can't measure LoC, you have to look at the address map and
actual bytes consumed by the load-linker.
