We could do a lot of things and add a lot of complexity. However based
on the fact that the simplest test has been broken for some time and
no-one noticed, the evidence is that the kernel image size check isn't
a widely used feature (and the kernel image size check with multiple
kernel image types even less so, if at all) and so probably shouldn't
be the focus of our efforts.
