Smaller sites equate to an often worse light gathering ability (which is why pinhead sensors are pretty crap compared to aps-c and then FF)

The 2.4 micron pixels of the RX100, for example, capture the same proportion of light that falls on them as the 6.25 micron pixels of the Canon 6D.

It's smaller sensors, not smaller pixels, that result in less light gathered for a given exposure.  That is, a FF sensor made of RX100 pixels would gather the exact same amount of light for a given exposure as it currently does.

I knew I could count on you Joe to help out...I was getting pretty tired
