Sure,

This is the gcc x86_64 asm on a stripped down
bpf_core_types_are_compat() with a 1k struct on the stack:

bpf_core_types_are_compat:
test esi, esi
jle .L69
push r15
push r14
push r13
push r12
push rbp
mov rbp, rdi
push rbx
mov ebx, esi
sub rsp, 9112
[...]
.L69:
or eax, -1
ret

This latest clang:

bpf_core_types_are_compat: # @bpf_core_types_are_compat
push rbp
push r15
push r14
push rbx
sub rsp, 1000
mov r14d, -1
test esi, esi
jle .LBB0_7
[...]
.LBB0_7:
mov eax, r14d
add rsp, 1000
pop rbx
pop r14
pop r15
pop rbp
ret
