Well, that part isn't the one that I think is bothersome - I just wonder
if the whole "defconfig" mess is worth keeping with the kernel at _all_.

It also causes tons of noise whenever I happen to do something like "git
grep CONFIG_XYZZY" to see where some config variable is used etc.

So I was more wondering whether maybe there could be better ways of doing
that whole thing.
