I've looked for this in the past and couldn't find any, and I think this
would be very valuable, but it also sounds like a lot of work for you
to maintain.

Another thing we had discussed previously would be to check in
distro configs into the kernel itself in some form and have the distros
only maintain the diff that they would like to apply on top, in form
of a config fragment.
