What it does is (a) always start with a valid config, and (b) not permit
any change that would make it invalid.

So, you froze X86 at startup. SMP gets asked early. If you specify
SMP=y, and then later try to set RTC=n, the configurator will not let
you do it and will explain why. At that point if you want you can go
back and change SMP.

What's to prefer? You get essentially the same behavior unless you start
with a broken config.
