One other note about the updated wiki article.  This line:

[user at host]$ cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config

is especially important at this moment even if you are building just
the standard kernel.  This is because there is a bug in the current


which causes custom kernel build to fail (details are in that
bugzilla).  This has to do with the fact we need to remove the
template section which would otherwise disable the buslogic driver.
By running the above cp command, you will be using the config files
that have buslogic disabled.
