Two points here:

1. if it removes stuff, that's good.
2. but it has the potential to cause conflicts when other defconfig
   updates happen.

I think (2) outweighs (1), and as it's only one line, I agree with the
idea of just leaving it for when the defconfigs get updated.  We need
more effort spent on consolidating the bigger fish...
