Hi again.

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1461259011.1918.23.camel@perches.com/

I would prefer a generic solution that also handles the
quoted use.

$ git grep -P 'default\s*\"[ynm]"' -- '*/Kconfig*'
arch/mips/Kconfig:      default "y"
arch/mips/Kconfig:      default "y"
arch/mips/Kconfig:      default "y"
arch/mips/Kconfig:      default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "n"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:        default "y"
arch/powerpc/Kconfig:   default "y" if PPC_POWERNV
arch/powerpc/Kconfig:   default "y" if PPC_POWERNV
arch/powerpc/Kconfig:   default "n"
drivers/auxdisplay/Kconfig:     default "n"
drivers/crypto/Kconfig: default "m"
drivers/rapidio/devices/Kconfig:        default "n"

or maybe 2 separate patches.

And the "default y" case and probably the
"default \!?EXPERT" is or should be generally
discouraged.  Especially for drivers.
