Historic reasons (and actually I think you are doing something wrong
if your kernel image exceeds this size :-).
Anyway, the limit was now raised to 8 MB, and a new config variable

It took him several minutes to understand any new idea put to him,
and this is a very valuable trait in a leader, because anything any-
