In which way does size give any indication about the sequence of

Um... this is a _very_ strange argument.

-> size net/ping.o spl/common/console.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
    569       0       6     575     23f net/ping.o
   1771       0       8    1779     6f3 spl/common/console.o

So the execution order is that "ping" is running before the console
