That's because we didn't have the "select INPUT if VT" yet..

Anyone, can we at least get a different option for this thingy then?
CONFIG_EMBEDEDDED is even more wrong in this context than in the
old one.

What about two new options to replace the old CONFIG_EMBEDDED?

- CONFIG_AUNT_TILLIE - for this kind of shoot yourself in the foot
protection

and

- CONFIG_NONSTD_ABI - for the original sense of a kernel so limited
that parts of the usual userland ABI may disappear
