Wish: a 'leaner' -lean, removing unneeded drivers

Bug #322711 reported by Peter Gantner on 2009-01-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Ubuntu EeePC Kernel

Bug Description


I have experimented a bit using the array.org git sources, and found that there is still al lot of stuff configured from the ubuntu stock config which is unlikely to be needed with an EeePC (or other netbook the kernel could be used on).

Namely, most of the SCSI drivers, and anything PCI which is not already built-in physically (e.g. PCI DVB drivers, IDE adapters etc.), and misc other stuff

I get a (highly subjective) boot time improvement out of this, as well as reduced kernel build times obviously.

I attach a stripped-down config as an example - it is not ideal but might serve as a starting point. (Tested to work on a 1000H, it is likely to be stripped too much for other models.)

Would be nice if something like this would be considered for an upcoming release.
