Very sorry, I ment that the original modules.*map files are 300% larger
than the diethotplug binary.

Hm, for the options I use in 2.5.31 I get these results:
modules.pcimap 6273 bytes
modules.usbmap 98513 bytes
modules.ieee1394map 73 bytes
----------------------------------
total 104859 bytes

diethotplug binary 16332 bytes

Looks like the modules.*map files are closer to 650% larger :)

thanks,
