Nor I particularly, but I do with gcc 4.9.1

Curious.  What gcc version?

with that 4.9.1 gcc version and a defconfig (x86-64) I get:

$ size net/ipv[46]/udp.o*
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
  21328	    672	      9	  22009	   55f9	net/ipv4/udp.o.new
  21312	    672	      9	  21993	   55e9	net/ipv4/udp.o.old
  14463	    588	      2	  15053	   3acd	net/ipv6/udp.o.new
  14527	    588	      2	  15117	   3b0d	net/ipv6/udp.o.old

and defconfig x86-32:

$ size net/ipv[46]/udp.o*
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
  19626	    324	      5	  19955	   4df3	net/ipv4/udp.o.new
  19706	    324	      5	  20035	   4e43	net/ipv4/udp.o.old
  14189	    300	      2	  14491	   389b	net/ipv6/udp.o.new
  14125	    300	      2	  14427	   385b	net/ipv6/udp.o.old
