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.
If your goal is to build a vanilla kernel that runs on CentOS, look at
kernel-ml as suggested by Phil:
Yes, someone (Alan Bartlett) did the heavy lifting to elaborate the
config file for both el5 and el6. You should be able to modify it to
accommodate your needs fairly easily.
