Actually, we're inconsistent (who'd have guessed? :-)).
For instance if CONFIG_CURSES isn't defined then we print an error
if you try to use the curses option, similarly for iscsi, slirp
related options, tpmdev, and others. But there are also many
options where (as you note) we just silently ignore them, and
even a few where we print a warning but continue to boot (eg
some of the networking config options).
