I'm not quite sure what you refer to since you cut all the context.

There is nothing really PS3 specific about tuning your kernel config.  It is more
or less trail and error.  I recommend you start with ps3_defconfig, then disable
what you don't use and know you don't need, then try disabling different things and
see if the system still works.
