I only have a bikeshed painting comment, even in shell scripts please try to 
follow the kernel comment style visually, i.e. something like:

( Also note the vertical separation that helps see the overall structure a bit 
  better. )

But more fundamentally, that's an awful lot of complex scripting to save 4K 
(unused) kernel text, not sure it's worth it.

Once we grow proper LTO support I'd guess these unused functions would go away 
naturally? None should have a __visible annotation.

Thanks,
