The current (20080324) kexec binary on x86 is 135KiB. While not a
problem on a normal distro or runtime environment, it's a chubster
in an embedded role.
Has any thought been given to reducing its 'on-disk' footprint?
The rather obvious, non-default build-time options to only support
specific kernel types and capabilities, jumps to mind.
Beyond build-time options, a Busybox applet would further minimize
size, but maintenance would be painful...
