I've built letux-4.5 now; haven't yet tried to boot it.

I notice, though, that it appears to require lots more disk space when 
installed on the GTA04, compared to 3.7 or 3.17.  Specifically, the 
/lib/modules/`uname -r` tree is now about 200Mb, whereas for 3.7 or 3.17 
it was about 16Mb.

Is there something I can do to reduce that?  Perhaps some global 
stripping option?  Or alternatively some big trimming of the CONFIG_*
