If people to chose to disable a certain feature, then that is their own
decision to do so.  We should respect that decision.  Clearly they seem
to have no interest in a better or more featureful packet filter, then.

I mean, it's not like somebody proposes to implement NTFS inside the FAT
filesystem kernel module because distributors (or data centers) tend to
disable the NTFS module?!

How is kernel development these days constrained by what some users may
or may not put in their Kconfig?  If they want a given feature, they
must enable it.
