  I am using the current build of buildroot.  everything is okey after the
first time I build a root fs.  then I start to modify
project_build_i686/MySling/root/ to make it fit my need. then re-run make.
at this point, I see the resulting image grows a few meg.
if I keep on running make, the image keep on growing.  so I captured what's
going on

  BUILD   arch/x86/boot/bzImage
Root device is (3, 1)
Setup is 10476 bytes (padded to 10752 bytes).
System is 10052 kB
Kernel: arch/x86/boot/bzImage is ready  (#8)

kernel size keep on growing......and the resulting /boot will contain a big
and corrupted kernel..
please advise...thanks
