I have a couple of theories, but anyway ...

u-boot$ git reset --hard v2018.01 ; bu socfpga_cyclone5 ; ls -la
spl/u-boot-spl.bin
HEAD is now at f3dd87e0b9 Prepare v2018.01
-rw-r--r-- 1 marex marex 52902 Apr 11 00:34 spl/u-boot-spl.bin

u-boot$ git reset --hard v2018.03 ; bu socfpga_cyclone5 ; ls -la
spl/u-boot-spl.bin
HEAD is now at f95ab1fb6e Prepare v2018.03
-rw-r--r-- 1 marex marex 59706 Apr 11 00:34 spl/u-boot-spl.bin

Try bisecting out the commit which caused this 7 kiB growth between
2018.01 and 2018.03 . Even those 53 kiB are quite borderline, but it was
at 53 kiB for a while (2017.05 is also ~53 kiB)
