Surely that's the point of the GENERIC kernel config, something that 
will work on 99% of the hardware? Your idea of a stripped kernel config 
is probably different to someone else, and I don't think you should be 
forced into a kernel recompile immediately after install to turn basic 
stuff back on again.
