This is a cool article
I hope it works on sparc32 despite being a less used architecture and sparc64 as well I'll be updating my kernel there soon as SMP support has been fixed (previously SMP kernels locked up on many UltraSparc boxes unless you forced them into uniprocessor mode)
Smaller kernels are really important for sparc32 as the kernel is at the point where you can't compile many drivers into the 3.4MB or so limit. Its around that anyway.. I think newer versions of SILO might have lifted that somewhat but I am not sure.
Smaller faster kernel why would ANYONE complain?
