That's what I initially though as well. But then you have cases where
intuitively you prefer the current m -> y promotion:
tristate "Ext3 journalling file system support"
bool "Default to 'data=ordered' in ext3"
depends on EXT3_FS
Ternary logic is fun only as long as it is not mixed with boolean :-(.
