I just double checked now (using nm to confirm). In fact, I was
commenting the wrong portion of the Makefile to test. Sorry about that
=(. Here is the result in amd64: 240K with stdlibs and auxlib, 166K
with only auxlib and 154K solo. Anyway, I still think that is 86K is
not that much to have things like {base, string, table}lib. However,
though I think stdlibs could be in another kmod, I think that is not a
good idea to have auxlib in another one. Lua auxlib is just an
extension of the Lua C API and 12K is really a fair price to have a
more complete Lua library in kernel, IMO.
