    This is getting to be a very common posting/answer sequence here.

    Does anybody else think it would be a good idea to have a warning
    message for menuconfig or xconfig that appears when ext2fs or elf binary
    support are modularized that says something like:

    WARNING: Most systems will not boot if ELF binary/EXT2 filesystem
    support is not in the kernel.

    These two in particular seem to be the most common user goofs that show
    up like kernel problems.
