SubjectRe: some curiosities on the filesystems layout in kernel config

The problem with expressing every last dependency is that you'll
end up hiding too much.

A less intrusive approach that doesn't require changes to the
current configuration framework may be to add a section
"Warnings" at the end, under which some pseudo-options would be
enabled if some unusual combinations are found (e.g. CD-ROM
drivers but no ISO9660 file system, PC architecture but no
keyboard, etc.)
