Hi Vincent,

make localyesconfig and make localmodconfig doesn't work with this
patch.

My scenario looks like this:
* Create a virtual machine with Ubuntu 14.04 in GCE
* git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git
* cd linux-next
* curl -o .config https://raw.githubusercontent.com/avagin/criu/linux-next/scripts/linux-next-config
* make localyesconfig

Without this patch:

$ cat .config | grep VIRTIO
CONFIG_BLK_MQ_VIRTIO=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK_SCSI is not set
CONFIG_SCSI_VIRTIO=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_NET=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_CONSOLE=y
# CONFIG_HW_RANDOM_VIRTIO is not set
CONFIG_VIRTIO=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI_LEGACY=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_BALLOON=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_INPUT is not set
CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO_CMDLINE_DEVICES=y
# CONFIG_RPMSG_VIRTIO is not set
# CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_VIRTIO is not set


With this patch:

$ cat .config | grep VIRTIO
CONFIG_BLK_MQ_VIRTIO=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK is not set
CONFIG_SCSI_VIRTIO=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_NET is not set
CONFIG_CAIF_VIRTIO=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_CONSOLE is not set
# CONFIG_HW_RANDOM_VIRTIO is not set
CONFIG_VIRTIO=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_MENU is not set
# CONFIG_RPMSG_VIRTIO is not set
# CONFIG_CRYPTO_DEV_VIRTIO is not set


You can see that with this patch CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK is not set.
It is wrong, and the kernel with this config will not be able to boot.

We can add "default y" to fix this problem.
