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.
