I thought this feature don't have a big impact on embedded.
At First, 7K is not important but as time goes by, it could be huge
with very small size feature for server or desktop.

So I wanted to add it with optionally. :)

In future, embedded also have a big ram then we can remove optional
config completely, I think.
