    But UNIX=m == waste RAM and have an effectively b0rken system until the
    module is loaded. It would be silly to do this unless you have a very small
    space for the kernel image and some free space for storing the needed
    modules. The big question is: Is there any non-embedded system where you
    have to aim for a small kernel image?
