Where did you get that number?

Ignoring mount_portal (which was separate before too), mount_mfs
(which is hardlink to newfs), and mount_ufs (which is hardlink
to mount_ffs), the amount of consumed space is some 150K, which
is roughly 100K more than before. This would be even less
once/if getmntopts would be moved to libutil.

I don't think the 100K difference is a problem. If it is, don't
put the stuff you don't need on the flash.
