Re: NetBSD-8 kernel too big?

If anyone is interested in reducing large sizes, try this:
$ nm --print-size --size-sort --radix=d /netbsd

some of the biggest offenders come from:
neo(4)'s neo-ceoff.h
sys/dev/microcode in general


Also, looking at it with xxd, a lot of stuff is just zeroes.
I assumed it is the alignment padding for 2MB pages but changing the
ldscript did not help (maybe I'm doing it wrong)
