Yes. The suggestion of looking at page faults is just for an easier to
reproduce number to look at first.

I am under the impression that this can also be useful for instruction
cache on a running application. Which order file is used to optimize
that is obviously different (the one created by
function_reordering_plugin), but the linker option is the same.
