remove lines from MINIMAL

The MINIMAL kernel config still contains a few things that can (should?) be taken out, either because they should not be used in a production kernel (like WITNESS stuff), or are drivers that are run-time loadable.

(Please note that the loop, random, ether, and bpf devices cannot be removed from the static config because of kernel compile errors, and removing basic screen and keyboard stuff is pointless.)

Assign to Warner who is working on MINIMAL.  My understanding of the current plan is to make it a less minimal on order to increase it's usefulness.

Canonicalize assignment.
