could please anybody recommend some kind of kconfig generator that would trim modules and built-in stuff that is not needed according to current hardware ?
The best I have found is this : http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/9/16/290
I don't care about compilation time and the amount of modules that are not built-in. I'm concerned about performance. I don't know how much memory and runtime is wasted on huge kernels with almost everything possible.
I'm a java developer and I don't know what most of the modules and drivers are for. So there is not much I can disable and be sure that I don't screw it up.
Thanks in advance
