Sure. It's inconvenient, no question about that. I asked the i915 people
to look into not requiring CONFIG_FB, and I hope they will, but my point
is that I don't think we can consider "small one-time inconvenience" to be
a "regression".

CONFIG_FB is one of the things that _could_ be selected for (it doesn't
depend on anything else that I know about), so just changing the "depends
on FB" into a "select FB" may get rid of the issue - but it would not
actually fix your problem, since your CONFIG_DRM_I915 has already been set
to 'n' by now - so you'd _still_ have to enable it by hand again.

So the upside is not very big - people who have custom configs are the
often the same people who try -rc1's, so they've already hit this.
