I'm far from a wizard at this area, but I've had pretty good luck 
with the following recipe for trimming the hardware section:

Boot up GENERIC or something similar that finds all your hardware.  
Put the output from dmesg in a window where you can easily search 

Edit your CONFIG file.  Whenever you come to something you don't 
recognize and think you can pitch, scan the dmesg output to see if/where 
it is used.  If it wasn't used you can get rid of it.
