Hi Paul,

I guess this is called progress.  Anyway, it's good that you noticed and
reported it.

In 4.20 (and earlier), PCI defaults to y.
As you hint, in 5.x, PCI does not default to y, so Kconfig symbols that
depend on PCI will not be set/enabled by "make olddefconfig", including
SATA_AHCI even though SATA_AHCI is set in your old .config file.
