Well, please stop doing that ;-) Upstream is notoriously bad at limiting
drivers to the systems on which they are actually useful (or maybe they
are not that bad but still not good enough to my taste.) So in many
cases new drivers are only needed in a subset of our kernels, or even
none of them.
I know it takes some time to decide for each new driver whether it
should be enabled or not. But it pays quickly by reducing the risk of
build failure (which in fact are sometimes a hint that you enabled the
driver on an architecture it wasn't meant for, so it was never tested)
and speeding up the future builds and updates.
