    Every project starts small and has the annoying tendency to grow.
    That still doesn't answer, why it has to be distributed with the kernel,
    just install the thing somewhere under /lib and Kbuild can link to it. The
    point is that it contains nothing kernel specific and doesn't has to be
    rebult with every new kernel.

    bye, Roman
