No, I never expected extra kmod packages to affect kernel size.

Anyway I finally debugged this local vs. buildbot difference to the
CONFIG_KERNEL_KALLSYMS. Images from buildbot have this symbol enabled
which slightly increases kernel size. Enough to stop it from booting
on WRT300N v1.

The reason it took me so much time to realize it's related to
CONFIG_KERNEL_KALLSYMS is bug in LEDE building system I just spotted:
[LEDE-DEV] make -j 4: race between Image/Prepare and device images?
