    [PATCH] allow /proc/config.gz to be built as a module · f2443ab6
    Ross Biro authored
    The driver for /proc/config.gz consumes rather a lot of memory and it is in
    fact possible to build it as a module.
    In some ways this is a bit risky, because the .config which is used for
    compiling kernel/configs.c isn't necessarily the same as the .config which was
    used to build vmlinux.
    But OTOH the potential memory savings are decent, and it'd be fairly dumb to
    build your configs.o with a different .config.
