Off the top of my head, you'd want CONFIG_PREEMPT and erm, the correct
sub-architecture for your chipset (686, k7 or whatever). Other than
that, don't have compiled-in modules for hardware you don't have
(although it seems most stock kernels are very modular these days - you
could shed some ATA/SCSI lld fat I expect). If you are confident enough,
patch in inotify and use gamin instead of famd (assuming you are going
to have famd on your desktop - most likely).
