Kernel size: Why no change after patching?
I am newbie on OpenBSD and am learning things as I go.
I observed something about Kernel size. As I could not reason it out, I am presenting it to this forum. I would appreciate if you could please help me understand.
I bought 4.7 CD and installed 4.7 on my home desktop.
/bsd has a size of 7582622
Yesterday, I checked out the stable branch of 4.7 and rebuild the kernel as per FAQ.
/bsd (after stable build) also has the same size of 7582622.
I checked the size of bsd on the CD-1. It has the above size too.
From the patch list posted, I know that reliability fixes have been made. My questions are:
a) Why does the kernel size not change between release and stable build even after reliability fixes?
b) Did I not build the kernel correctly?
During research, I found one post:
