Yes.  Your kernel is too big for the zImage format.  This, however, is not
a serious problem - the solution is that instead of using the zImage
format, which has some small limit on the size of kernels it works for,
use the bzImage format. (which has a much larger limit)

i.e. type
	make bzImage
instead of
	make zImage
