I definitely don't think it's stupid. In a resource constraint
environment that want to use remoteproc but won't use virtio this makes
total sense.

But the added Kconfig creates complexity and people run into issues
because the default defconfig is incomplete, they got their defconfig
"wrong" or "make olddefconfig" misses the new config.

As such, I simply would like us to postpone the introduction of
configurability until there's someone that can show it's worth the
complexity.

Right, so we would have to make sure that in all "standard"
configurations REMOTEPROC_VIRTIO is included.
