SubjectPROBLEM: make oldconfig can change Alpha system type on 2.2.19
[1.] One line summary of the problem:    
make oldconfig can change Alpha system type on 2.2.19

[2.] Full description of the problem/report:
With the system type set to `Cabriolet' (CONFIG_ALPHA_CABRIOLET)
running make oldconfig causes it to change to `EB64+' (CONFIG_ALPHA_EB64P)
without asking.

(See end for probable cause.)

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):
kernel, configuration, alpha

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):
Linux version 2.2.19 (bacam@kamelion) (gcc version 2.95.2 20000220
(Debian GNU/Linux)) #8 Thu Apr 5 10:42:25 BST 2001

[5.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)

[6.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
problem (if possible)
[7.] Environment
[7.1.] Software (add the output of the ver_linux script here)

[7.3.] Module information (from /proc/modules):

[7.4.] SCSI information (from /proc/scsi/scsi)

[7.5.] Other information that might be relevant to the problem
(please look in /proc and include all information that you
think to be relevant):

[X.] Other notes, patches, fixes, workarounds:

The Configure script chooses the old value for a `choice' by testing
each possibility in turn and using the last one. Now choosing
Carbriolet also sets EB64P, but EB64P is later in the choice list and
thus is chosen as the default (and the Cabriolet setting is ignored).
