No need to curse. That's the recommended method for those that want to build kernels based on GENERIC, in such a way that any updates to GENERIC are also updates to their kernel.

Just include GENERIC in the config file. Any devices/options you don't want, you disable via nodevice/nooption. That way, when devices/options are added to GENERIC they are automatically added to your custom kernel as well.

See the SMP config file for the include syntax.
