That is what the hints directive is for.
you could create a file "diskless.hints" and add the line to your config
and the contents of that file would be statically compiled in. You can still
override them at boot time if you wish, but the basic set will be there.
This is what GENERIC does right now. It compiles GENERIC.hints straight in.
(see hints.c in compile/YOURKERNEL)
