    SubjectRe: [PATCH 2.3.48] initrd fix (Mike Galbraith)
       Date:   Sun, 27 Feb 2000 19:18:54 -0500
    From: Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@mandrakesoft.com>

    Run 'nm vmlinux' with the sort-by-size argument. Guess what the
    biggest objects in the entire kernel are? The dentry and inode
    hash table base arrays...

    Unless there is hidden stuff, a nice fix for this would be to make
    their allocation dynamic at the beginning of fs_init() or somesuch.

    Yes, and they should be dynamically sized too.

    The dentry hash table is done dynamically in 2.2.x already, so
    you can just backport that. The inode hash table should be
    trivial to do.

    Later,
