Do you always compile all *.c files? Notice that it doesn't equate to ifdefs
- e.g. if you have CONFIG_EXT2 undefined ext2 will not be compiled at all,
but there is no instance of CONFIG_EXT2 anywhere in *.[ch].
As for reducing compile time, try to feed the current tree through cpp and see
how much is included (and ignored) by preprocessor. I mean, just check how
much do we actually include and how little do we really need...
