When acting as an ordinary user, the .config is beyond my control
(except on Gentoo). It is in control of the distro (Fedora, Ubuntu,
... but perhaps not Gentoo). I think the distro guys want a default
behavior that is set in .config, with quirk overrides being done when
needed. And of course the user in his/her boot params gets the final say.
