Unfortunately, the stripped modules are unusable. Some useful symbols were
removed while they shouldn't have been.

We can still save a few ko (but much less) with that :
$ strip -R .comment -R .note -g -x module.o

/me spent half a day understanding why modprobe was segfaulting while
trying to insert a module


PS: If anyone knows a better stripping method that would still leave
the required symbols ... i've seen a objcopy script that does that :
But it saves only 2% more, not really worth the trouble.
