It's all explained in my request.

JFTR even if there wouldn't be the explained reason to build with the
Arch config, then building a vanilla rt-patched kernel from
without Ubuntu patches still provides a kernel that is absolutely
optimised for audio productions. I'm building this kind of Rt patched
kernels for Debian and Ubuntu since years. Since Ubuntu doesn't provide
a full preempt rt no Ubuntu patch and no Ubuntu config can fit, let
alone that provided releases needs to be selected for audio production.
FWIW some users for sure want to build with localmodconfig.

However, I can repeat the explanation. The Ubuntu developers suspect
that green drives get woken up by the kernel. I suspect that this isn't
the case, so I will build a kernel I use on Arch Linux too, were green
drives stay asleep. I also run 4.x kernels on Arch, but since I anyway
need to build a 3.x-rt, because this isn't provided by Ubuntu, I
decided to build this kernel.
