SubjectEvolution of kernel size

I took some time to make a graph of the evolution of the size of the
linux kernel tar.bz2 since version 1.0 till 3.1 (297 releases).
It doesn't count the stable branches (2.6.x.y).

Impressive, it's mostly exponential.
If dev keeps same pace, we should break the 100MB at
linux 3.19.

You can get the graph on my blog, I provide the data and the
gnuplot batch file for graphing/fitting:

It may interest some people :-)
