Right, I need to isolate the effects of each variable. Results for gcc 
3.4.4 and 4.0.2, built with CONFIG_CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE enabled, appear
below. Pardon the bad methodology.

$ size vmlinux.*
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
2333474  461848  479920 3275242  31f9ea vmlinux.344.inline
2327319  462000  479920 3269239  31e277 vmlinux.344.noinline
2319085  461608  479984 3260677  31c105 vmlinux.402.inline
2313578  461800  479984 3255362  31ac42 vmlinux.402.noinline

Those who do not understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.
