You _can_ avoid it by seeding those configurations. You place the
options you want to force to a specific value in a file, and then

make allmodconfig KCONFIG_ALLCONFIG=seed-config-file

So, to turn off samples:


in seed-config-file. Hence, you can still do an allmodconfig build but
without building the samples subdir.
