SO my system of about 2 weeks or so ago had a /boot/kernl for which du
returned a value of ~19000K

On rebuild and reinstall today my root filesystem filled up when the size
of /boot/kernel passed 49203K   and it wasn't anywhere near finished.

Can someone put an UPDATING entry explaining why this happenned
(there seems to now be a .symbols fir for every .ko that is much larger)
and how to turn it off!
