'kernel too big' question.

        Currently on IA-32 boot/tools/build has limit of max compressed
        kernel of 2.5mb. I had been wondering what's the reason for this?

        I had been trying to build has-all, non-module kernel and I ran
        across this limit. Disabling the check in build.c and recompiling
        the kernel would work fine and such "oversized" kernel still
        would boot for me with no problems.
