Description of problem:

Somebody must have seen this before, however I can't find it.

The 2.6.24-9.fc9 kernel package is order of magnitude larger than
normal packages:

$ rpm -qi kernel-2.6.24-2.fc9.i686  kernel-2.6.24-7.fc9.i686
kernel2.6.24-9.fc9.i686| grep Size 
Size        : 49331975                         License: GPLv2
Size        : 49323032                         License: GPLv2
Size        : 518680870                        License: GPLv2

This was caused by the update to file-4.23:

4.21 prints:

# file ahci.ko
ahci.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

4.23 prints:

# file ahci.ko
ahci.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB relocatable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV)

Now guess what string the find-debuginfo.sh script is looking for when it
searches for modules to strip...

There's a change in the new upstream version that's causing it.  It has to be

I have built a new package in devel that should fix the issue.
