Just because userspace software depends on something doesn't mean we should force that on everyone, even if disabling it could make some systems fail to boot (that is an inherent risk in building your own kernel). dnotify (inotify's predecessor) is an excellent example of this: nfs-utils depends on it, and that not working can definitely make a system fail to boot, yet it is not hidden behind some other config option, but defaults to being on.
Is systemd depending on something really reason enough to make it
depend on EMBEDDED? For example all the cgroups stuff is not only not
dependent on embedded, but also off by default, and I'm sure there are
a boatload of other dependencies which any normal system has no
business worrying about but that are required by systemd.
Does the lack of cgroups keep a (normal) system from booting, though?
