I don't recall .config falling out of a grep for that. I also asked
less to search for it in .config without finding it. This was in
2.6.0-test3-mm2's src dir.

I reran a make menuconfig and saved, and a trial make is underway now.

Damn, grep must not look at .files, its there, and still 14. Thanks a
bunch, new build underway.

However, I'd assume a make mrproper, or an oldconfig might reset that
to the include/config/log/buf/shift.h value? Its also in
autoconfig.h FWTW.

Cheers, Gene
