IIRC the problem was in that case that a patch was adding a new select
that made the symbol not necessary in the defconfig. So a patch against
linux-next was posted removing the unneeded symbol but at the end the
select patch didn't make it to the release but the one removing the
symbol did.

OK, using 4.3-rcX should be safe AFAICT.

Thanks, the changes looks good to me though so please feel free
to add my Reviewed-by tag if you re-spin and split the changes.
