That is theoretical. Which platform will break or feel distressed if we
make it unconditional. That is real world.

Yes. There is so little code behind CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTART that it
won't help with that.

But if minification is the actual requirement for disabling
CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTART than CONFIG_CHECKPIONT_RESTART is properly
behind expert and it needs to be default y instead of default n.
