the defconfig would probably enable too many things. In the debian
package, we're making sure that it's not more than 1441784B so it would
fit in 2MB. Look at your /boot if you already installed a debian kernel
before. Otherwise, download the deb from a mirror and extract its
content in a temporary directory and you'll get a boot/config-$VERSION.
