Re: [PATCH] mini-os: use -m elf_i386 for final linking

? I'm not seeing this on my system:

  0 .text         0001933a  0000000000000000  0000000000000000  00001000  2**12

so only 4K offset in the file, the file ends up being 135K big after

Using a 32bit emulation for a 64bit binary? This looks very odd to me?
(and probably fragile)

I'd like to know more where this 2MB binary file offset is coming from,
since AIUI it'd basically impact all binaries built by the toolchain of
your system, not just mini-os, and I don't think the maintainers of your
system want that :)
