Here are the sizes of the binaries, the first one built two days ago against the RTEMS in September and the second one using the identical user code base and this morning’s RTEMS.  I haven’t done much to analyze this yet other than to verify it’s still being built with the same optimization flags.

Monitoring the size of the binaries would probably be a good thing to
do especially with buildbot when that gets working.
