I like having the symbols in the same directory as the kernel object
files.  Perhaps we could do something with making kernel.sym files
(and .sym files for the kernel modules).  Another idea that I meant
to try sometime was to bzip2 the *.debug files (or the *.sym files,
if we can generate those).  That way, the info would be in the right
place when it's needed, but until then it won't take up as much room.

I have no idea how practical that would be, though...
