the normal flow for defconfig changes is to first do the driver changes,
then later on propagate anything that is needed into the defconfig, once
the driver change is upstream.

for example we've already got this queued up in tip/x86:

| commit b5d958ea66ac11b1190c24f042f517adf9229a98
| Author: Auke Kok <>
| Date: Wed Apr 9 13:17:39 2008 -0700
| e1000e: set CONFIG_E1000E=y in x86 defconfigs
| This adds to the already default CONFIG_E1000=y in these files.

and there's a fair number of other changes as well to the defconfigs for
v2.6.27 which might collide. So it would be nice to keep it separate
