The kernel configuration used for the kernels currently shipped with
Fedora 16 and Debian 6.0.3 (ie, stable or squeeze), which are the
configurations I can examine here, have CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL set. Perhaps
Debian and Fedora need that option for a few odd features. But it seems
that the message given by having a feature depend on EXPERIMENTAL - to
people using those configurations as a base to fine tune the kernel to
their needs - isn't so strong.

Are there any mainstream distributions that do not enable EXPERIMENTAL?
