personally i would use the kernels `localmodconfig`, ie. `make
localmodconfig`.  this make target will build a kernel matching the
current state of your system. so, you must:

1) boot normally
2) `modprobe -r` any modules you *for sure* don't need
2) `modprobe`/launch absolutely every module/application you might
want or need (everything! loopback, bluetooth, etc)
3) `make localmodconfig`

... this will build you a kernel with only the bare minimum needed to
fulfill your current state; any modules not loaded at this time will
not be built.  you may still need to configure other features
unrelated to modules.
