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.
