Maybe, we can add something like CONFIG_SUPPRESS_NOISY_TESTS,
which is set to y by all{yes,mod}config.

This is self-documenting, so we do not need the '# too noisy' comment.



config SUPPRESS_NOISY_TESTS
       bool "suppress noisy test"


config GCC_PLUGIN_CYC_COMPLEXITY
        bool "Compute the cyclomatic complexity of a function" if EXPERT
        depends on !SUPPRESS_NOISY_TESTS
