I simply used linux-next. The defconfig does NOT contain CONFIG_VHOST and therefore CONFIG_VHOST_NET and friends
can not be selected.

$ git checkout next-20200401
$ make defconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
HOSTCC scripts/kconfig/conf.o

*** Default configuration is based on 'x86_64_defconfig'
# configuration written to .config

$ grep VHOST .config
# CONFIG_VHOST is not set
