Is there already a make config option that will do a good job at setting
a default .config file based on what is already running on a system?

I get tiered of trimming down my .config for my laptop build so it takes
less than 30min to build a kernel.

Bonus credit to additional "expert" options (like those powertop puts
out) for target uses, laptop, HPC, home file share, embedded targets....

Oh, and lets make the expert configs easily extensible.
