Anyone not using buildkernel is on his own. If he uses buildkernel, he
already has a new config, so what's the problem. I also don't like
making such options mandatory, because they are *not* mandatory. That
fault has been made in the past by making each and every compat code
depend on COMPAT_43, we shouldn't repeat.
