6 Why would it be unsafe? The Ubuntu kernel config from /proc/config.gz
7 is a config optimised for desktop systems of your architecture by a
8 bunch of clever guys working for Canonical.
10 Whilst it may be possible to optimise the kernel very specifically for
11 your hardware, I think you would notice more shortcomings of that than
12 benefits, and it just seems a lengthy waste of time.
