I ran into this doing an allyesconfig. Allyesconfig has one disadvantage,
for choice it will only select the first or default option which means
that option gets exercised well and all the other options not at all. On
MIPS that'd be IP22, 32-bit, R4x00, big endian, 4K pages, no multithreading,
250Hz. Make randconfig disables lots of things so often misses the
opportunity to trigger some issues.

I'd really want an "make allrandconfig" which enables as many options as
possible but picks a random one from choice statements, something like that.
