But don't you think that people who are actually building the kernel
with allmodconfig or allyesconfig and/or with COMPILE_TEST enabled are
just doing that to build test the kernel. Atleast for me, when I am
testing i will always do allmodconfig but when I am building which is
to be deployed somewhere then I am building with a particular config.
