Ha, OK allyesconfig. Last time I attempted an allyesconfig for i386 I got
me the OOM killer attack on my KDE, half way into the final link.

That's why I use allmodconfig for when I need "try to compile everything ++"
I get just as much compilation coverage if not more. And is faster.
It'll not show symbol conflicts if any exist, though.
