SubjectRe: [PATCHv4 2/3] fs: Make core dump functionality optional
Quoting Alex Kelly (alex.page.kelly@gmail.com):
> Adds an expert Kconfig option, CONFIG_COREDUMP, which allows disabling of core dump.
> This saves approximately 2.6k in the compiled kernel, and complements CONFIG_ELF_CORE,
> which now depends on it.

Is there another reason than the 2.6k to do this? My kernels range
between 4.8 and 5M, so that's .05% size savings?

I'm not saying nack (it's not my area anyway), just seem to be missing
the point.
