For an i686 desktop, are there specific things I can do to achieve above
Specifically, how do I compile the kernel for i686 instead of i386 _and_
will doing so benefit in terms of efficiency? ( Will COPTS+=-mnative in
I did notice the kernel size nearly halving after trying to set a minimal
configuration. But space or RAM the kernel will save this way did not
