As for the "many of which were removed n years ago" part: in I suggested to delete
almost 2000 lines from over 400 defconfig files. That would have deleted
all certainly unused macros from all defconfig files. Nothing happened
after that. My fault, I'm afraid.

But just removing all the certainly unused macros probably wouldn't have
made a noticeable difference to anyone using those defconfig files
