If you try
strings vmlinux|grep /usr
you get a bunch of strings like:

One other couple of Kb. The problem is not that, but the string comes from:
..(line 110)
* Temporary debugging check to catch old code using
* unmapped ISA addresses. Will be removed in 2.4.
#if 1
extern void *__io_virt_debug(unsigned long x, const char *file, int line);
extern unsigned long __io_phys_debug(unsigned long x, const char *file, int li
#define __io_virt(x) __io_virt_debug((unsigned long)(x), __FILE__, __LINE__)
//#define __io_phys(x) __io_phys_debug((unsigned long)(x), __FILE__, __LINE__)
#define __io_virt(x) ((void *)(x))
//#define __io_phys(x) __pa(x)
As you see, it was not removed in 2.4...
