If you roll your own kernel, you are free to turn on any options you
want.  For the FC kernels that are packaged in RPM, there is no need to
include the same information multiple times, especially when one of them
takes up RAM on a running system (all the time, used or not).

Actually though, the FC kernel RPMs do include the config in two places:

/boot/config-`uname -r`
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/.config

There is no point in a third copy that uses RAM all the time.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
