Kernel compilation made easier with 2.6.32

Saw this thread on LQ and thought I'd post it here.

Now if you run "make localmodconfig", it will scan your system and disable all unneeded modules in the config file.
It's not perfect, but it gives you a pretty good config file to start with. You'll probably still want to run "make menuconfig" after.

This will indeed make it simpler and above all safer
