We could also do an automatic check if the selected kernel fits into the
chosen memory segment, but an option never hurts.

When nobody else is interested I would give it a try. But I prefer to
coordinate my effort with Roc Vallès, as he has to make sure it also
compiles with the Amiga-port of gcc6 (which I don't have installed).

Should we remove the -p option, or leave it for compatibility?

And the new option could be -M. Or give the existing -m a new meaning, which
seems to be useless IMHO.
