    Ah, sorry, I first mis-read your posting. You're right, what you're
    suggesting obviously works too (except for the hopefully rare case
    where you overwrite your old kernel image with a new one without
    rebooting instantly).

    But is it so much more expensive than a /proc/config.whatever ?
