itsn no surprise for sure, but that also means i have to stay on the old
kernel for these special devices and your argument about disable certain
parts which simply turned bigger over time is no option

since it would remove features which existed before. its not that i
enable all features of the kernel. i use every kernel with the same
options (some are adjusted since they are renamed or moved)

but even then the kernel is turning into a ram and space eating monster
if i look on devices with 16 mb ram and 4 mb flash. this is mainly for
maintaining older hardware with latest updates. the more recent hardware
is getting better here

you dont seem to know how it is to work on wireless routers :-)
