Advantages of trimmed kernel?

Are there any real advantages to building a kernel stripped of unused drivers,
especially when running it on a fairly large machine? For years, I've been
dutifully removing device drivers (or more recently, including GENERIC and
using 'nodevice') for everything I don't have. But does this actually do
anything useful, or am I just tilting at windmills?
I know the definitive answer would be to run benchmarks both ways, but I don't
really have the option of pulling down a production machine just for this.
