Hmm, then it depends whether the kernel is for users or for developers.
I, as a user, do not really want to compile drivers with allmodconfig
which I have no way to load/use.

And allmodconfig is basically what we, users (SUSE distributors in this
case) do. So having this driver being built makes our life harder (in
the meaning we have to have specific rules about disabling unwanted
drivers from configs).

And, developers should have a testbed where they build 32bit configs.
And we actually have that for -next AFAIU.

thanks,
