Why is VGA_SWITCHEROO enabled by default?

because it does nothing on anything except the laptops in question and on
those it does nothing except add a control file in debugfs?

So how am I supposed to indicate to distro vendors that something should
be turned on? If you think that distro kernel maintainers really
understand every config option that goes past, I've got a bridge.

Yep. If the help-text for a new config option is well written, a kernel maintainer will have no problem deciding what to do.
(the help text for the config in question is wery well written, thanks
to whoever wrote that)

And this specific option/feature is already requested by endusers, so no
maintainer will be able to "miss it" :-)
