Depends on what you consider "that small". Kernel size is a large
issue for the Cobalt series due to the firmware limits (although
Peter Hortons attempts at a Cobalt bootloader will hopefully help in
this regard). Embedded stuff and PDAs is another field where 2.6
currently seems to pose a problem.
