80Kbs? You sure about that? I somehow failed to mention this before.
I noticed it when I saw another reply to this post. Reality check:
root@fireball / # ls -al /boot/initramfs-3.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5444240 Jan 1 07:24 /boot/initramfs-3.1.5-gentoo.img
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5515132 Jan 9 07:57 /boot/initramfs-3.2.0-r1.img
root@fireball / #
That's using the dracut tool. Somehow, over 50Mbs is not anywhere close
to 80Kbs, or maybe my calculator is broken.

Miss the compile output? Hint:
