I'm just catching up source-changes from a couple of days, and I see a lot
of former kernel options now being defopt'ed: NFSSERVER, COMPAT_LINUX,
COMPAT_FREEBSD, COMPAT_SUNOS, ... What's the idea behind this? 

Wasn't the intention of these options to remove unnecessary code from the
kernel if one didn't need the funcionality? Is it just me who is under the
impression that this optionality is gone now - or am I just missing
something obvious?
