    Thanks for jogging my memory! That's absolutely the right place to do it.
    I'd completely forgotten about that... DUH! Too much ridin in the rain
    or something like that... I wonder if we could hack something up with the
    kernel to check that during a make config? Maybe as a default, cause I
    know I DO make kernels for other machines at times... Hmm... I think
    I'll try it this afternoon... I'll just check the family for now,
    y'all can fill in other stuff if it's needed... Look for a patch if it's
    worthwhile and workable...
