From: Michel Thebeau <michel.thebeau@windriver.com>

The routerstationpro has a 16mb flash which the kernel image should
fit into.  The default build type for vmlinux then should be a
stripped vmlinux.

Use KERNEL_IMAGE_STRIP_EXTRA_SECTIONS  to do this.

Reverts commit 9cd3816e4db97c8fd093a120a75a2b5d193afcdd, which causes:
RedBoot> load -v vlm-boards/19256/kernel
Using default protocol (TFTP)
Unrecognized image type: 0x0
