What I do is keep my kernel configs in subversion. I have a "common"
component which applies to all systems under my control, and an
architecture specific component that applies separately to i386 vs.
amd64 systems. In each, I take advantage of the fact that the config
file can have 'makeoptions' which are basically dumped right into the
So in my common file, KCICOMMON, I have this at the top:
makeoptions KCICOMMONREV="$Revision: 366 $"
and in the i386 specific file, KCI32, I have this:
makeoptions KCIREV="$Revision: 358 $"
Since some of my systems are SMP enabled, I have a minor variant
called "KCI32SMP" also, which is entirely this:
now, my kernel identifies itself with uname:
% uname -i
KCI32SMP at 358+366
So I know this is a 32-bit system running SMP with the version 358
i386 config and the version 366 common config.
and a trivial lookup in subversion tells me exactly what's in it.
