Yeah, my experience is that [all[yes|no|mod]|def]config covers about
95% of the build bugs and the remaining 5% are rarely showstopper
problems (they generally don't show up in configs that people use).

Given how fast allnoconfig and defconfig builds i've got allnoconfig
and defconfig scripted to always execute together with allyesconfig.

So if you go the trouble to build allyesconfig manually, it costs
almost no time to tack on the allnoconfig and defconfig as well (and
stick this all into a script), while it increases the efficiency of
the build test remarkably.
