There are others.
If I understand correctly, space for the kernel (code and data)
is allocated once at initial system load. Smaller code portion =>
more space for data.
Second, fewer components => fewer interactions => fewer
possible points of failure.
And, _anecdotally_, smaller kernels are faster. I haven't
tested in a few years, but it used to be enough faster you could
tell it with the naked eye.
