Hmm, if the option is MI, why move it out of the MI NOTES?  We don't
generally remove items from NOTES just because they are enabled by default
in GENERIC.  That would break the functionality of NOTES where it documents
options (and sometimes provides more detail than the 1-liner comments we
use in GENERIC).

In this case I would have left NOTES as-is and instead added PPS_SYNC to
the relevant GENERIC files with a one-line comment leaving the more
detailed comment in NOTES.
