Maybe the dual booters with small drives might bug eye at a 1G boot
partition? But in the short term (year?) I'm not expecting a Btrfs
switch where /boot on Btrfs as a subvolume avoids the concern of
wasted space; so if it needs to get bigger, the only different way I'm
thinking of is make it 750M?

But I regularly keep 5-8 kernels including debug kernels and I'm not
seeing this kind of space consumption. I've got kernel 4.5.2 nondebug
and takes up 30M in /boot, and 4.6.0.rc4
debug takes up 31M. So...? Fedora uses hostonly initramfs. Is that a
factor? Even if I go that route, it's only 59M for the debug kernel
and its initramfs and map. I don't hit 250M with four of those, let
alone 500M. What am I missing?
