I am asking if it creates a problem for the install floppies, because I
want to remove the option. It is just another mostly useless switch and
it makes it harder to drop having separate INSTALL kernels. Note that on
i386 and amd64 the main INSTALL kernel is already not size limited, but
that's different for other architectures.
