I actually asked this question on the kernel mailing list and someone pointed me to a tool that would
look at you current running system an generate a config file. Only problem is if there are features you
may want in the future that are modules and aren't loaded currently, they don't get configured.

This was a year or so ago and I don't remember the tool's name though.
