The risk to kernel compilers comes, for example, from not knowing what kinds of network card they have or what kind of drives they use. That's the level of detail needed.

That's what I'm talking about! Why is that still needed? Like I said, in BSD, the GENERIC kernel coveres all of that in most cases, and only in rare oddball cases are you required to load a module to add needed functionality.

Linux needs a GENERIC kernel configuration IMO.
