From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

This Kconfig change allows the common 'make allmodconfig' and
'make allyesconfig' build options to skip the staging tree, which is
probably what you want to have happen anyway.

This makes the linux-next developer's life a lot easier so he doesn't
have to worry about changes that break the staging tree, that's for me
to worry about...

+ ---help---
+ Are you sure you really want to build the staging drivers?
+ They taint your kernel, don't live up to the normal Linux
+ kernel quality standards, are a bit crufty around the edges,
+ and might go off and kick your dog when you aren't paying

+ Say N here to be able to select and build the Staging drivers.
