Fair enough, I get that.
I'm certainly not proposing to change the Fedora vmlinux kernel.
That said, I *am* interested in general in making VMs as lean and fast as possible.

The Fedora kernel team would really like to maintain a single kernel
(vmlinux) that is used across the products.  That will lead to some
unnecessary things in all of them, but the maintenance burden is
greatly reduced if there is a single vmlinux to triage.  We're looking
at splitting up the kernel packaging to make the RPM itself smaller to
help with overall image size.

That being said, if you have found options that can be made modular or
that you think are no longer needed by anything, please let us know.
We're always willing to review config settings.
