More lines doesn't necessarily make a project more sucky. Especially in the
case of the Linux kernel, it's inevitable considering the requirement to
support new hardware and new standards (which I don't think is a
particularly sucky ideal, if done right).

As for removing all the things you don't need, you might want to look at (but really, I don't understand the desire to
recompile kernels in general use).

Yes, the Linux kernel sucks in many ways, but the SLOC is not the reason.
