uhm, I use GENERIC without any issues. in the past i made smaller
kernels and such, but with the last 2 releases (3.5, 3.6 and of
course -current) everything works and my flash is big enough (128)
to hold a default install. - plus it's got all the cool things by
default (gpio, etc)...

unless you want to hack, i'd say use GENERIC ;)

3.6 pulled NMBCLUSTERS out for various reasons...it is now a sysctl.
