    As no distro will build their kernel with that option=y, and it is now
    documented in the archives that there's an error there, I don't want to
    really rip out all of those files :)

    Hm, wonder if we can just force the option to be either N or M. I don't
    see an easy way to do that in the config system, anyone else know how?

    thanks,
