The best idea I have is to hide CONFIG_BLK_DEV_UB behind

I thought about it, but I do not like CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL as a concept.
I seem to recall a few instances when it was practically required, because
some necessary driver was covered by it, and so users ran it always-on.
AFAIK, both Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Beta have it enabled
for that reason. We can try it, certainly, to see if it helps.

Just because other people use it wrong doesn't mean we can't use it right...
