I stand to be corrected, but I believe the first option you see is the
default. So in your example, y is the default choice. Just to clarify,
when I use the word default here, I mean it as the option that
pressing enter would choose, and not as the option that you get when
doing a fresh kernel compile, without a .config file present, or when
configuring an item never seen before.
