    I'm actually looking for a way to do filtered randconfig (and
    all{yes,mod,no}config) for ARM, so hopefully we can come up with
    something useful.

    Our problem today is that we have not just two but dozens of
    incompatible platforms, and with randconfig every 'choice'
    statements still just gets its default, which makes randconfig
    builds fairly useless.

    What I'd like to see is one or both of these two behaviors:

    * Take a defconfig file (with the new format that only sets
    non-default options), and keep everything in there but
    apply the rand/no/yes/mod-config to all other symbols.

    * Randomize all settings, including choice statements.

    Arnd
