In the light of what was said about embedded systems, I'm not really sure a
boot time option really is the way to go...

All the hash tables in question are allocated dynamically,
we size them at boot time, the memory is not consumed until
the kernel begins executing. So a boottime option would be
just fine.

Franks a lot,
