    kernel object sizes

    I have compiled the new 2.6.30, and to my surprise every single object is significantly bigger than it was just in 2.6.29.
    ls -lh Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.30/fs/nfs/nfs.ko
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user 5.0M 2009-06-12 10:49 Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.30/fs/nfs nfs.ko
    ls -lh Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.29/fs/nfs/nfs.ko
    -rw-r--r-- 1 user user 506K 2009-06-12 10:34 Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.29/fs/nfs nfs.ko
    ls -lh Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.30/arch/s390/boot/image
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 user user 6.6M 2009-06-12 10:49 Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.30/arch/s390/boot/image
    ls -lh Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.29/arch/s390/boot/image
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 user user 4.5M 2009-06-12 10:33 Desktop/Linux-src/linux-2.6.29/arch/s390/boot/image

    Same compiler, same machine, same everything.
    Configuration wad copied over from 2.6.29, completed by suggested defaults. could find no entry that might produce this overhead (additional debug info, symbols, etc.).
    Any ideas?
