    Part of the problem with EXPERIMENTAL is that it's been taken
    to mean all sorts of things over the years from "this isn't quite ready, but works"
    to "if you enable this, you're a lunatic". It's meant that pretty much
    everyone has to enable CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL anyway for a kernel offering
    the features everyone has come to expect. As means of example, I'll bet
    there's no (or at least very few) distros that ship a kernel with
    CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL disabled.
