SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/2] x86: Support compiling out human-friendly processor feature names
From
Date
Is the goal here to shrink bzImage or the runtime kernel?

Also, there are eay too many ifdefs in this patch. You don't have to conditionalize the rules to build things, just don't include them if not needed.
