Yes you are basically right. One must start with defconfig and add anything
he needs. UM has neglected to play it nice with Kernel, missing some basic
implementations of simple things, just for example ndelay. So some code that
should theoretically work, fails to compile.
I have around an allmodconfig with the minimum of configs turned off, so
to compile a maximum possible coverage. I have this pet project of half
Kconfig "depends on !UM" and half "implement some missing parts". But I
never have time to actually clean it up, patch it and send it upstream.
