That page could have been written in Chinese, it would have been equally clear.  

I guess I'm just used to PC hardware, where kernel compiling simply means "if
you have graphics card XXX select the driver with the same name". I've yet to
find that simplicity in HP hardware, probably because everything is done via
custom chips that combine several functions, and it is not clear to me which
chip does what, as every line in that page starts with Gecko.
