There's an error in your "How To"

If you used it as you posted it, you did not build a new kernel.

After running the config of GENERIC, "cd .." takes you to the wrong directory. Your kernel build would not occur. It should have been "cd ../GENERIC.vmt"

FAQ 5 needs to be perused, so you understand what you are doing when you rebuild a kernel, and what to expect.

To check what kernel you are running with, just use this command:

sysctl kern.version

You'll get the first two lines of your dmesg, showing the name of the kernel, when and where and by who it was built.
