Been there done that with a fully compiled Gentoo Stage 1 system....
was great for learning how everything goes together back then...

These days I prefer to use the same kernel as others to ease
support/maintenance headaches and save time overall... The potential
performance gain is not worth the trade off (for me) in the time
invested when for my systems I prefer things to just work(TM) so I can
get on with more interesting stuff....
