    It's something we've had in Fedora kernels forever, because
    when rebasing to a new upstream version the process becomes

    make newsymbolsconfig
    take list of symbols, and make decisions on them
    make oldconfig

    without it, the process would be..

    make oldconfig
    note new symbol, make decision
    make oldconfig
    note a 2nd new symbol, make decision
    make oldconfig
    note a 3rd new symbol..
    make oldconfig..
    you get the idea.

    The way we have it isn't perfect, (adding a new symbol may unhide
    another set of new symbols), but it reduces the number of iterations
    needed dramatically.
