           Summary: Please ship vmlinux files
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: linux
        AssignedTo: ben.collins at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: ross at burtonini.com
         QAContact: kernel-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

Please ship non-stripped non-compressed vmlinux files for the kernel builds, for
use with tools such as OProfile and sysprof.  These don't need debug builds of
the kernels, just unstripped and uncompressed kernels.

For reference I just rebuilt a kernel using the Ubuntu Breezy config file, and
the vmlinux file is only 3.7M.  I'd love to see this available in a
linux-image-dbg package.
