But we're not talking about what YOU prefer. We're talking about what
is a sensible default. I think we can all agree that if we have a
choice between 2 functionally equivalent options where option 1 always
works and the other requires X and QT3 headers, then the decission is
easily made.

But why? Just use menuconfig and be done with it. What does xconfig
bring you that menuconfig doesn't?

Sigh. Ulf, you really need to learn to work with the rest of the BR

 Ulf> You have NO business changing the board defaults.
