A suggestion to all developers

I got into the habit of making all unused kernel componnents configured as
modules. Not that I use most of them, but it does flush out compile problems
early, and it does not hurt anything to have them (except a longer build
time and some /lib/modules space - but only if you make modules_install).

[BTW, I do use modules+kerneld for everything and am very happy with it]

I think that this will be usefull in shortening the iterative nature of build
problems that are so common when global structural changes are happening.
