Pahole in the news

Found another interesting article, this time mentioning a tool I wrote long ago and that, at least for kernel object files, has been working for a long time without much care on my part: pahole, go read a bit about it at Will Cohen’s “How to avoid wasting megabytes of memory a few bytes at a time” article.

Guess I should try running a companion script that tries to process all .o files in debuginfo packages to see how bad it is for non-kernel files, with all the DWARF changes over these years…
