Change: The kernel module size without amalgamation build is: 3.1M

I guess it's not because of debug info.

Amalgamation build is a kind of simple 'LTO', it compiles the ktapvm as
one huge C file and allows GCC to generate faster and shorter code.

But I also surprised by the size gap, will spend some time to investigate it.

Thanks.
