Rather than editing GENERIC, you may want to copy GENERIC and rename the 
copy (KERN[DATE] or KERNEL[DATE] are possibilities; I'm sure you can think 
of more), then edit, build and install the renamed version.  Though 
problems are very unlikely to occur just from adding "device pcm," if at 
some point in the future an edited kernel doesn't build or install 
correctly, you then have the unchanged GENERIC to fall back on.
