    I care a lot about Config dependency checking, and you are not within the
    group of people that I care about in this respect.

    kernel-hackers has no problem realising that a "make oldconfig" is needed.

    But I care about NN that follows 2.6 development, and update his/her
    tree each time a new version is posted at kernel.org.
    This group of people needs dependency checking on Config files -
    as can be seen by the number of reports that boils down to
    "run make oldconfig".
    Which we btw. have not seen the last couple of weeeks, but I still think
    is good.
