IIRC the 'default y' is to avoid breaking when updating from an old,
pre-vendor, kernel config (for example with 'make oldconfig'), otherwise
all wireless drivers would have been disabled without a warning. But as
wireless vendors were introduced back in 2015 in v4.5-rc1 I don't think
we need to worry about that anymore. But I would like to keep this
behaviour consistent across all vendors, so they all should be changed
at the same time in one patch.
