Grr. I noticed this too late.

Why do we have that

default y

for "config FC_APPID".

That makes absolutely zero sense to me. Not only don't we do "default
y" for new features _anyway_, but something like this is certainly
much too specialized to warrant it.

To make matters worse, it actually asks for this stupid thing *TWICE*.
Even if you say no the first time, it will then later on ask about
BLK_CGROUP_FC_APPID, and if you make the mistake to say 'y' on that
second try to push this feature, that will then do a "select FC_APPID"
to turn it on.

So honestly, it feels like

(a) the "default y" is just completely wrong in all ways

(b) this "config FC_APPID" shouldn't be a question AT ALL

IOW, it should likely purely be enabled by that 'select' for people
who decide they want BLK_CGROUP_FC_APPID (which properly defaults to

Pls advise. Or just send me a patch to fix it. Because the current
situation is most definitely not ok.
