They are expected in the sense that nobody seems to care about the
defconfigs that are failing, so nobody is looking into the failures.

Since almost all of these failures seem to be related to various
defconfnig + kconfig-fragment builds that nobody is taking the time to
fix, I'm going reduce the set of defconfig that are built for stable
trees to just the in-tree defconfigs.

That should greatly reduce the signal-to-noise for these stable
reports.  We can then add back defconfigs as needed, on the condition
that someone has the time/energy to keep those configs working in stable
