Ok, I see.

I still need to learn about a lot of ways in which ARM differs from
other architectures I've worked with. I was thinking of
CONFIG_DEFAULT_UIMAGE on powerpc, which causes the uimage to be built
as a default make target.

Since ARM doesn't have that option, this obviously isn't a problem
for randconfig builds.
Sorry for the noise.
