Sure in a full blown GENERIC kernel.  But I'm talking about a kernel config
that just matches his hardware, no more.  If related device names have
I'll grant you that.

Is not the point to use a common denominator by which to judge size changes
and performance?  Leaving in differing options is not likely to be very
effective comparison I think.
