Ok, so the previous entry became long and complex. So here is a KISS version of the post:

How to configure and compile a Kernel the easy, generic way. Core procedure.

1. Download Kernel --> /usr/src

2.
Code:
1# cd /usr/src
2# tar -xvf linux(x).tar.xz
3# cd linux(x)
4# make clean && make mrproper
(#(cp ../config ./.config)
6# make menuconfig
(save)
7# make -j3
8# make modules && make modules_install
9# make install
3. Reconfigure bootloader

4. Reboot into new Kernel && test/verify


Anyone and everyone can configure and compile a Kernel.
