    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.

    cheers
