If you want a simple configuration, then you don't use
the "Advanced configuration for Linux"

The advanced configuration is a selectable option.
so is the make menuconfig.
I prefer default

I wrote the Advanced configuration so that I can 
work with Linux in a manner that is flexible.

What should possible be done is to fallback to menuconfig if this fails

You want to minimize the options for the user, so I suggest
that you write a new way of configuring Linux
so you can do it the way You want.

You have NO business changing the board defaults.
