Subject: x86: removing zImage support?

I'm thinking again about removing zImage support.  An "allnoconfig"
kernel (with CONFIG_EMBEDDED=y to expose additional knobs, and
CONFIG_BINFMT_ELF=y so it can do anything at all) is currently 487K on
i386 -- very close to the upper limit of 512K for zImage.

Are there *any* residual users of this, or should I just push a patch to
remove it once and for all?
