I have to admit that, these days, I almost always create a new file, include
GENERIC, set a new ident, and then just add or trim options and devices as
needed. While I probably trim a little less from my kernel than I used to, I
find my upgrade path is much smoother since I'm just maintaining my local
variations in their own file. Typically, I'm just adding a few options and
devices locally, however, and not making large-scale modifications. I find
the include directive to be invaluable though.
