I'm happy with things using it in base outside of the linuxkpi.

I'm just trying to push back on the "death by a thousand cuts" that
the IOT platforms face for size constraints. There's plenty of stuff
in the base kernel that storage challenged platforms don't need but
they're not introduced or kept as modules.

It's 2017 and people /are still/ making embedded boards with 8MB of NOR flash.
