[PATCH 0/7] x86/boot: Shrink the decompression stub: conditionally exclude cmdline processing

From: Joe Millenbach
Date: Sat Jul 21 2012 - 06:41:53 EST

This is a patch set that progressively allows more of the decompression command
line processing code to be removed if it can't be used. This can shrink the
compressed kernel image by over 2k. The quiet and debug flags been switched to
use the pre-existing CONFIG_X86_VERBOSE_BOOT compile flag instead. And when
not compiled with earlyprintk debugging, the command-line processing code now
has nothing to configure, so exclude it entirely.

conditional compilation

x86/boot: Exclude early_serial_console.c if can't use it.
