Based on the feedback from the discussions under the thread below,
here is a summary of the changes we are recommending and following
are two patches implementing the remaining changes:

    Subject: Built-in modules review

Filesystems: No changes required.

Subsystems: Netfilter appears to be just the very core of the protocol and
not parameterisable, leaving it as it as built-in.  No changes required.

Network Protocols: Both DCB and XFRM can not be modules, both are
appropriately =y.  No changes required.

Input Drivers: Both INPUT_TOUCHSCREEN and INPUT_TABLET are Kconfig
switches enabling their drivers en-mass, both are appropriately =y.
No changes required.

ATA Drivers: we decided to modularise all PATA drivers and most SATA
drivers.  Patches follow.
