    The whole thing could be considered an "allmodconfig" bug. In this case,
    "select" is working as expected on IA64 and automatically sets
    IA64_UNCACHED_ALLOCATOR when MSPEC is selected.

    Perhaps the right fix would be modifying allmodconfig so that it takes
    into account dependecies (i.e. "depends on", "select", etc).
