Possible kernel optimization

Hi all,

this is an idea that I think possible.

It is possible to fit all the driver initialization & probing code in a
separate ELF section that can be discarded after kernel initializations ?

This code, after the kernel initialization, is unused, why don't free it ?

Yes! We need to modify all driver initialization code, but I think this
solution can be able to free 1/5 or 1/6 of the kernel size, specialy in
a big kernel.
