For v4.6-rc4:
$ git grep -n -e "default\s\+\"[mny]\"" -- "*Kconfig*"
arch/mips/Kconfig:2232: default "y"
arch/mips/Kconfig:2237: default "y"
arch/mips/Kconfig:2257: default "y"
arch/mips/Kconfig:2262: default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:5: default "n"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:30: default "n"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:39: default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:46: default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:53: default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:60: default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:67: default "y"
arch/mips/cavium-octeon/Kconfig:74: default "y"
arch/powerpc/Kconfig:435: default "y" if PPC_POWERNV
arch/powerpc/Kconfig:658: default "y" if PPC_POWERNV
arch/powerpc/Kconfig:869: default "n"
drivers/crypto/Kconfig:142: default "m"
drivers/misc/Kconfig:784: default "n"
drivers/rapidio/devices/Kconfig:8: default "n"

These appear to behave as intended, but I still think the quotes should
be dropped. (A brave soul might want to dive into the kconfig internals
and see whether they can be made less liberal in their parsing of
Kconfig files in this regard. I'm not volunteering.)
