One solution is to fix the cruft in the Debian configs and then push those
upstream (that is, after running them through a mainline "make oldconfig"
to filter out the stuff that Debian's patches have introduced).
The upstream defconfigs aren't really needed by upstream developers except
for smoke testing the build. Downstream configs are useful for that too
and would also be useful to have in the mainline for end users who need to
build mainline kernels (which has been helpful for mac68k driver updates
in the past).
