Re: Putting the kernel on a diet

<t>I think that the configuration step declares the  features, e.g. in pseudocode, ARCHITECTURE = ARM11<br/> <br/> and then the  MIPS and Alpha and 8088  ... whatever other  architecture code is ignored in the next step, so it's not compiled.  So I think only the sources are fluffy, not the executab...
