Yes, that's correct, but it doesn't seem related to a particular
configuration item (moon phase maybe).
For example the kernel I'm using right now (-rc4-something) has the
same config as a non-working kernel minus LOCKDEP, but git-current
minus LOCKDEP does not work. On another kernel I got a working config
just enabling DEBUG_INFO, in another case I disabled MTD.
