The first Ubuntu development kernel for 3.12 was just recently uploaded and has the option enabled, so I'm not really sure what kernel you're referring to with this bug report. Seeing how it is enabled though I'm marking this bug invalid.

Hi Seth, I was referring to
the /boot/config doesn't have this option enabled.

(maybe this kernel is handled differently because if from saucy? Is it handled by a different team?)

Our team does generate those kernels, but they are for test purposes only and are not meant for day-to-day use. As such they are not officially supported. The option here was new in 3.12 and for whatever reason got defaulted to off, but as soon as those builds start using the trusty kernel packaging the option will be enabled in the mainline builds.
