Kernel Compilation Speedups

Well, I've also built some kernels for ocassions. The vanilla 2.6.37 kernel I built seemed snappier than the shipped-in Mandriva kernel, and Freecell Solver executed there at 72.7685720920563s instead of 73.6936609745026s (the fractions are what was reported by my script and copy pasted here - they are not very accurate.).

I hope that you agree with me that 99.9218485921% of the users wouldn't bother themselves with recompilation (or any other manual step for that matter) to make their games run 1.27127529900685765% faster ;-)
