I agree that the defconfig mechanism is broken (ie. carrying the full
text in tree), but the concept is sane IMHO.

What'd be nice is if the defconfig could just be a delta against a base
config for the architecture - that would make most of them reasonably
small, just turning on/off a few options.

You can sort of do that today, by just storing a delta, but oldconfig
will silently turn off things you have enabled if prereqs change, so
that doesn't really work I think.
