Things like Linux Trace Toolkit - soone or later you have to start using them to tune performace. Patches to remove mandatory (for 2.2/2.0) PCI/IDE support were pretty common too. Patch to shrink network hashes - norm of life. Patch to kill PCI names database. And this is only things I was using personally (and I remember about) in my short 4 years carrier. CONFIG_TINY - http://lwn.net/Articles/14186/ - got something like this merged? - so I'm the first guy in the download queue on ftp.kernel.org! Kernel heavily tuned for servers and workstations (read - modern PCs). At my previous position company was using kernel prepared by Karim Yaghmour and right now we using kernels from MontaVista. Far from vanillas. > embedded people complaining Sure complaining. For some reasons all "improvements" to kernel had lead to increase of kernel size, not decrease. Strange, isn't it?
