This is a step which in my mind makes a GENERIC kernel config not a generic
kernel config anymore.

IMHO there should be a MODULAR kernel config which incudes the GENERIC
kernel config and disable the modules which are now modules and the GENERIC
one should still have all options enabled which were active before.
