The swapper, no, I think not. (Nor do you want to, probably, as much
of the same code is used for things like paging text segments in from
Some major subsystems - yes. Filesystems can be excised fairly cleanly
by removing file-system directives. Some other subsystems (eg: the
SV-compatible IPC stuff, LKMs, most compat modules, DDB, most device
drivers, IPsec, probably others) can also be removed at config time.
Other subsystems cannot be (eg: AF_LOCAL sockets, the VFS
infrastructure, UVM, probably others).
