I'm rather hoping that they'll notice the mailing list thread or that
someone else who knows what's going on with them does - as Geert pointed
out there's a considerable number of defconfigs that have this turned
off.  It seems more sensible to get some idea if this seems sane to
people in the general case before going trying to identify and contact
so many individuals.

If there are systems that really require disabling CONFIG_PM we probably
need to add stuff to Kconfig to make sure it can't be enabled anyway;
this shouldn't enable any new configurations.
