It isn't a sore point, it's the simple fact a non-supported kernel can
be a bear to work on. ...Is the problem real, or introduced by the
person making the special kernel?
Once off of 486's, I've never had a reason to cut down the size of a
kernel. The standard bsd and bsd.mp kernels have never failed me.
If you're *adding* something into the kernel, I think that would be a
different story and you could get people to help you.
