    SubjectPossible kernel optimization
    Date
    From

    Hi all,

    this is an idea that I think possible.

    It is possible to fit all the driver initialization & probing code in a
    separate ELF section that can be discarded after kernel initializations ?

    This code, after the kernel initialization, is unused, why don't free it ?

    Yes! We need to modify all driver initialization code, but I think this
    solution can be able to free 1/5 or 1/6 of the kernel size, specialy in
    a big kernel.
