hehe nice answer :)

I can remember when I wanted to know each module available in detail and disable as much as possible to make it as small and clean and fast as possible to have my high-tech linux kernel being 800% faster than the default one :P

Ok, 800% was too much vision but it's worth the trouble and disable things you don't need etc. (makes sense, eh ? :) )

But today, I just copy my config and look over the things in the menuconfig (something new/changed ?).

That will change since 2.5 offers some nice options and we have to wait and see what will change in the new kbuild/cml etc. as it's not finished yet...

Wow, quite much text for a simple question, eh ? :D
