    If you are going to store options the kernel was built with, you
    might as well get rid of all the cruft so you don't run into size
    problems. For example:

    sed '/=m/d;s/=y//;/^CONFIG_/s///p;d' .config | \
    gzip -9 | scripts/bin2c kernel_config_data > $@

    maintains all the useful information and will be less than 1/2kB.
    (things marked as not set or modular aren't relevant to the zImage)

    You can reconstruct it back with:

    gzip -d < /proc/config.gz | sed '/=/\!s/$/=y/;s/^/CONFIG_/' > .config

    Run 'make oldconfig' and hold down the Enter key for a few seconds.
