Firstly, it is not the real world issue, and if the kernel is too big,
it has to cause reloc overflow. For me, we can treat it as hardware
limitation, the user should not let the kernel too big.
And kernel support COMPILE_TEST which means the user is mainly focus on
building. For me, blackfin also needs to support COMPILE_TEST.

For me, it is not a good idea to make a conclusion during discussing.
