H'mmm... I have a question about the kernel configuration file...

I am currently using a customer kernel. Unfortunately, this machine was 
installed by someone before my time, so I don't know the details.

Can I make a 7.2 kernel using this 6.3 custom kernel configuration file? 
Or should I start with the 7.2 generic, and somehow customize it correctly?

I've been looking at the custom  configuration file... so far, I can see 
that it:

1. adds PF to the kernel
2. deletes unneeded drivers, like unused RAID cards and unused serial 

Or should I just try the GENERIC kernel, and maybe just add PF to it?
