I built a local version of the kernel because I needed some additional options enabled in the kernel (kprobes and debuginfo) so I could test out systemtap on the chrome book.  If the existing kernel works for you, why spend the time on building you own local kernel?



I would advise you build your own kernel.

The upstream chromeos-3.4 contains many fixes, including the audio fix so you do not risk melting the speakers.
I would also advise you enable audit_syscall.
Enabling the PERF stuff is also a good idea.

William has a great kernel doc on his people page that goes over this stuff.
