I'd actually love to get rid of the stupid defconfig's entirely. They've
lost pretty much all relevance over the years, except for specific cases
where you might have defconfigs that are for specific platforms.

IOW, the embedded kind of "per-platform defconfig" at lest is a useful
starting point. But even there I'm not 100% sure that it makes sense to
pollute the kernel source tree with them - they mess up things like

git grep PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD

horribly.

IOW, they're likely to be more pain than they are worth. And they really
aren't useful starting points for normal people (who are probably better
off starting with their distro kernel config) or likely even for most
kernel developers (who hopefully have noticed that they can install a
per-machine defconfig in /etc/kernel-config and forget about it).

I'd love to just delete them all.
