...this does sound like you are building a kernel by copying
GENERIC and making changes. Instead of that I would suggest a small
file with just the bits you want to modify, which then includes GENERIC.

for example....

	# Kernel for firewall - include Carp

	include		GENERIC
	ident		FIREWALL

	device		carp

That way you dont have to worry about the bolerplate from GENERIC
