Since Linkstations and Kuroboxes often have *very* little memory (as
they are embedded systems), it is desirable to get their kernels
compiled optimized for size.

I have been using kernels optimized for size on my Kurobox (standard)
for many different releases and I have experienced no problem with this
option enabled. Thus, this patch.
