Sure, but if your kernel also was built with support for userconf(4),
you could disable the wanted devices as a test at boot time without
having to rebuild a kernel, by passing the -c option from the
bootloader to the kernel.  Of course even if disabling a particular
device helps in your case, once you know which, it might be good to
file a PR with as much information as possible.
