hardware you *might* put on the motherboard, don't turn things for grits
and shins. You never know what untested combinations of settings might
disable a bit of code that you need after all.
I've been through all sorts of conniptions trying to convince
professional people entranced by the idea of "lean" kernels not to
overshrink their kernels, then all sorts of Q/A issues when they bought
One New Piece Of Hardware(tm) and expected me to make it work without
rolling a new kernel and putting it through *another* six months of Q/A,
with a source control package that they had never bothered to lock down
revision numbers for.
Drove me *ape*....
