Very nice, I didn't know about it. Unfortunately, this seems to
suffer from the same problem as the generic "randconfig" -- it
ignores all "choice" statements and just uses the default:

Try for instance

KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG=arch/arm/configs/omap2plus_defconfig make \
O=obj-allmod/ allnoconfig ARCH=arm

This is supposed to set CONFIG_ARCH_OMAP, but it instead chooses
CONFIG_ARCH_VERSATILE, which means it's still useless for me.
