My kernel and System.map looks very normal. I had the same file sizes you 
reported, but only when compiling with all debug symbols. Once stripped the 
kernel became at the normal size, about 8Mb.

When I got the large kernel, I stripped it before copying it in /boot. Arcboot 
never used the large file.

Bye,
Giuseppe
