Even if some of the OpenBSD guys don't seem to like
it, I regularly strip down my kernels (starting from
GENERIC) to exactly the hardware I have in the system.
Never tried modules, though.
I does make some difference, especially on systems
without all the modern stuff like USB:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 2289574 May 11 19:55 /bsd
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 5075204 May 3 10:32 /bsd.GENERIC
(That's a 3.5 box.)
If something goes wrong, I always can try to reproduce
it with a GENERIC kernel.
