I do not like the new(core-11) "make *config" behaviour. Now it starts
build immediately after finishing, make xconfig effectively does
make xconfig installabled. I usually cook up the .config first, and
than decide when to compile the kernel. Now i have to interrupt the

"make oldconfig" is broken btw, if the .config contains something
unknown (i.e. NEW). It used to ask for possible choices before.

And the last: kbuild-2.5 (as well as kbuild-2.4) keeps to be a good
stress/benchmark-test. Just tried to "make -f Makefile-2.5 -j" on
2.4.19-pre2-ac2... And decided to reboot after 15min (i'm at work now).
