What do people think about not installing a stripped /kernel ?

Ok, good. I'll make the change.
Re: Andrew Atrens module issue. I'll make the INSTALL_STRIPPED option
also strip modules. Remember that for your own purposes the kernel.debug
left in /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/BLAH/kernel.debug is still there, as are
the debug versions of the modules (in subdirectories). But once the
basics are in we can refine the mechanism to address module/kernel
issues if it becomes needful.
Re: Andreas Hauser's wondering about whether it should be turned off for
releases, I think the answer is no: It should be left on for releases.
Especially for releases ~30% of the bug reports would have benefited.
People with special needs can easily turn it off. And, I suppose,
for the new upgrade option the installer is going to have we could
even install a stripped version of the kernel if there isn't enough
space for the debug version. That's probably overkill, though.
